Garffin Sightings?

Anyone heard from him? He was setting out from Ct about two weeks ago on a newly purchased old wooden boat. I'm dying to hear about the boat and wondering if all went well.

He called me a few days after he posted and said he should be down in middle bay area 5 to 7 days. Garf made it sound like he was on the boat even said he spent the night on the hook. Maybe there's no compass on his boat.

LOL, right, so he could be in Maine? In LI Sound, just keeping the land on your right is no guarantee.

If he keeps the land on his right and heads north ??? Wouldn't he just keep circling Long Island?

I was thinking that if you go south on the east coast, you have the land on your right.
Wherever he is, I hope he's ok.
