Wish I were closer, I'd love to crew for you. Yes, you were crazy to buy without survey, but crazy is essential when you sail small boats! Yes, you wer lucky to get her in good condition at a great price, but lucky is the man who sails! Well done!

And did you buy Glenn a scotch?

Not surprised you got a great deal, the seller is one of my best friends. Good guy.

(Suggest you change your email in post #5 above, or expect to create a new email for yourself as the spammers find your current one.)

Hi Ian,

Have you launched yet? I work not far from Glen Cove and live about half way to Montauk.

CalebD helped him with the first part of the trip south. At least I think the picture of CalebD with the Statue Of Liberty in that bachground was on Ian's boat.

I'm wondering how his voyage to Florida is going. (We ought to have a sailnet-loaden GPS trackker on some of these interesting Sailnet poster's boats.)

Last heard from Ian was around Norfolk, VA.
He went all the way 'outside' SOLO if I understand correctly.
He has updated his 'Crew Wanted' thread here and there and could probably use an extra set of hands for his push south to Miami if you've got the time, inclination and money to get yourself there and back.
