Lara

Thanks for the thoughts on Lara. She is fine. The charter did ask Mr. Lunt permission to tie up. No one checked on the tides.

Over the 33 years Lara has chartered there have been 3 times where someone put Lara aground. Lara has also more than paid for herself several times over in charter fees. The friends I've made from sailing and chartering Lara more than make up for any damage.

My kids are quickly reaching the skill level where they will soon take Lara on their own. Someone said won't you worry about the boat and the kids. I said, "it will be my proudest day."

Knowing Mr. Lunt, he would of said, " sure, you can dock there but there won't be any water at low tide."

It's odd. I get more upset by the rudeness of a few of the comments than the fact Lara was on the hard.

Enjoy.

As someone who has spent his fair share of time in Iraq "defending us" (rolling eyes) .... I would be embarrased to know someone was using my volunteer service as an excuse for screwing up..... Glad your money maker is fine .....
