When we arrived in Mayaguana, Bahamas from Puerto Rico this spring and filled out the delightfully antiquated health form they only wanted to know who had died of disease on the voyage - murders apparently would be the concern of the country of registry.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

FWIW...
Damn............ It is hard enough to convince my wife comes on board and sail with me. Now I have to discuss the body disposal procedure with her. I would rather sail solo.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Lydanynom! Must you pick my responses so? I THINK "kill" means just that. If I killed some one, I did not necasarily murder them... What if it was by accident? HOWEVER!!!!!!!!!!!! IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS that someone asking about killing someone else at sea would be NO ACCIDENT! Murder Mr. Plum, murder. I believe it was with a rope in the Library. Now I can finally have Ms. Scarlet all to my self muhahaha

post ******- The guy in the picture is a serial killer from an acclaimed SHOWTIME show called Dexter. He finds people who commit evil acts and exacts vengeance on them for the sake of their victims. Really though, he just gets off on killing people but he justifies it by only killing the "evil" people.

Kilarney, how did you like Mayaguana? That is the most remote inhabited island in the Bahamas to my knowledge and it enjoys pristine environment. I follow news of these islands through the Abaconian and apparently Mayaguana is being looked at for tremendous development. They want to try and turn Mayaguana in to another Freeport. I hope I get down there again before that happens...

You were the one who opened the semantic can of worms here, man. It's all fine, though.

I appreciate the Dexter info from you and SD. I'm not a big TV watcher, although I do occasionally get a whole series of something on DVD if it seems worth it.

Mayaguana was a treat

It is quite large by Bahamian standards and has a population of about 200. People are very, very friendly but boy is it laid back. I think there is a small resort on the north side of the island and they were building a bar in the hamlet next to Abraham's Bay. Abraham's Bay could provide protected anchorage for a many hundreds of boats as long as they draw no more than 6 feet or so. Hope they don't develop it - there are lots of developed places, not many like this. Hope to go to Great Inagua and Acklin's in November, they seem similarly quiet and largely unpopulated.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
