"Ace of Hearts" is the name of my Hunter 33. It's from an old 80's song by the same name.

"KEET" is Tlingit for killer whale. The boat is a Haida 26. I think the PO intended to name the boat in the Haida Language. Tlingit and Haida are not the same. I don't know if KEET means anything in Haida, but I am pretty sure she made a mistake.

"Jo Beth" was the name of a very important woman in my life; she was perhaps one of the biggest influences my life has ever known.

I was born in the early '60's, to parents aging in the mid-40's, a not so common event at the time. By the time I hit my teenage years in the mid '70's, they were pretty freaked out by me, my long hair, and my rebellious behavior. Jo Beth was one of my best friend's moms and she took me in (along with a few other 'strays') as her own child. She was a writer and artist, and more importantly, she was encouraging and supportive of my goals and dreams. She introduced me to the arts, pushed me to write, all the while making it known there was a big, beautiful world out there just waiting and wanting to be seen and experienced. When my wife and I told her of our plans to go cruising, she smiled and hugged us; she later told me it would be a life well suited to my temperament. From the time I was 16, I spent more time at her home than my own, and when my wife and I married, she was there as my 'second mom.'

On mothers day in 2002, while talking on the phone with her oldest daughter, she died from a sudden and massive heart attack. When we bought our boat in the late summer of '03, we knew what her name would be, and with the blessings of my 'second' family, she was, with no doubt, "Jo Beth".

October Moon for the big full moon that was rising over us the night we knew she was ours.

Zanshin is a Japanese term from budo and deals with a clear state of mind, something that sailing certainly helps to achieve.
