koontzman is on a distinguished road
Toronto, Canada

Hi, why do we always write Toronto....Canada? are there so many other Toronto's out there to confuse everyone????

I'm getting back into sailing after 20 years. Went from NY, down the ICW to the Keys, to Cuba for six weeks (I'm Canadian !!), to the Cayman's and Mexico, took six months on a Dufour 34. That was in '92-'93.

Before that went from Hong Kong to Japan on a Beneteau 32. Took two weeks in Typhoon season...no, I wouldn't do that again, but the yachties in HK really know how to party!

I would like to get a McVay boat...Bluenose Sloop (there's one for $1,500 here), or a Victoria...perhaps an O'Day Tempest (there's one here for $1,900), or possibly a Hughes 25...there are three here under $2,000.

Or...maybe I could build one of Gary Dierking's Proa's...very cool, and car toppable.

Steve
