Title was definitely a jolt.

Arndt, hope all is well and you're back aboard that little pocket cruiser of yours sometime soon.

This title has got to go. I already know its misleading and it still gets my attention each time. No crying wolf, we dwell on real misfortune around here.

re: Zanshin blog - awesome!

I just noticed the title, and believe that it might be much better to rephrase that. The only people I can think of offhand who would pray for me would accompany that with chants and poking little needles in a stuffed likeness of myself.

Im sorry about that Zan. I was just being silly and didnt mean anything by it. I've contacted a moderator to change the title. I certainly did not want to offend anyone or cause any undo stress. I can certainly see how the title can be quite unsettling. Hopefully it will be changed soon.

Please keep up the good work on your blog. Between your blog and Farcry texting me every 5 seconds, its the closest thing I can get to being there!

Sincerely
Eddie

No worries on the title, I'm sure a mod will jump out of the woodwork (now that chat is no longer available) and change it...

I'm always surprised when someone reads the blog, and really pleased when someone mentions it, so "thanks" to you.

Sorry we missed you in the BVI. Close but no Rum sundowners. Hope that job pays for you to cruise all winter to give up paradise this spring.

I told him I would go to Germany for him so I couldn't feel sorry for him after I was willing to make the sacrifice.

Re: Zanshin blog - awesome!

Mel - too bad we did miss each other there, but I was trying to juggle the handheld VHF to talk to you and to run forward and get the fenders out and the docklines flaked correctly on the lifelines prior to entering Nanny Cay, then when I got inside I spent the time getting the backstays removed for the travelift and doing other tasks and by the time I remembered that I wanted to call back on the VHF I'd turned off and disengaged all the boat's electrics.
I hope your trip to the BVI was a good one - at least the weather played along and you didn't have a no-wind visit...

Re: Zanshin blog - awesome!

If this tread goes for long enough (meaning a very very very long time) we may end up back at the original title
And Mark, Pull your finger out and update your blog I miss reading about your adventures.
