I'm here in Long Key FL

Any sailnetters around. I like to meet up with sailnetters when traveling.
It is fun to put a face to a name.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: I'm here in Long Key FL

At the last check CD was slowly making their way down the West coast, looks like he might make Boot Key by Christmas

Looks like I'll be back in Bocha Chica/Key West in early April, but headed north offshore.

Re: I'm here in Long Key FL

We are signed up to go on a sunset cruise this evening with these folks.
Sailboat Cruises on the Hudson River and in the Florida Keys

They have been sailing for only 7 years and chartering for 5. Seem to be very serious about the business side of sailing.
I'll report back after the trip.

We just met Ralph and Beverly yesterday.
We talked their ear off for a couple of hours and all they got out of the deal was lunch.

I have had great luck with tracking down sailnetters when I travel. It is fun to put a face to these forum handles.

Ralph and Beverly are doing it for real. They deserve a lot of respect.

Re: I'm here in Long Key FL

I left Boot Key Harbor just 11 short days ago, and I began missing all the wonderful folks I met there before I got out of Sister Creek.

If you get to one of the Saturday Night Music sessions, say hi to Randy the guitar player and tell him that I'm in south Georgia and headed offshore for South Carolina tomorrow. When I talked with a friend of mine that is a local, winter resident of Marathon Key he said the next time I visit I should stay at least another month. From what I've been experiencing weather wise, I think he was right on the money.

Enjoy Boot Key Harbor - it's a wonder place to spend a lifetime,

Gary

Thanks so much for taking us to lunch, David. It was great meeting you and Dianne. We always enjoy meeting other people, and especially other Sailnetters. You guys take care, and enjoy the rest of winter back home. Hopefully you won't have to deal with more snow!

Maybe we'll see you up there during hurricane season, once we leave the Bahamas.
