sailnaway Hi John
I did not get your last email but I thought I should give you a heads up. I will try to call you again my phone took a swim and I lost all the numbers but found a piece of paper with some scratch on it that may be your number.
The two guys from California Troy and Josh has turned into Josh and Lisa.
Lisa is a teacher or is working on that and has no sailing under her belt. Josh is the same but has the fever. I have no problem with a woman on board as long as it does not become an issue with her on a watch. I have sailed with some women who could sail circles around guys so maybe she has the right stuff.Still on for the first week in June in Ft Myers I will have to bring the boat up from Marathon bu myself unless one of you comes down to help. Not a problem I just sail till dark and anchor off for the night if its not blowing to hard. Ok well I will try and call later.

sailnaway Ok thanks guys for checking in. I just want to make sure all the ducks swim in the same direction. I hope you guys are studying some navigation and basic skills stuff. Reading Latts and Atts is crap but they have nice looking girls. I like sail magazine and more technical issues if I want girls I will look at Hustler or some other cheezy rag anyway good to here from you. And keep in touch. Later Jim

June Trip

Hi there I am currently a college student at East Carolina University in North Carolina. I would be very interested in this trip with you in June seeing as I graduate from school in early May. I have been looking for a trip to take before I get at it in the real world. I have vast experience on the water on Power Boats growing up on the NC coast.

If the position is still available e-mail or you can phone me at 910-471-4197

sailnaway I finished my list for the week feels good to know most of the hard stuff is done. My grandson will be here in a week or so and I will take his sailing to Indian Key for a shake down. 45 years of sailing and working on boats sure makes it a little less painful. The cost is much higher today than it was in the late seventies when we had a 70' Fife and sailed south five of us for about $2300 if I remember right that was including air fair home when they jumped ship in Barbados and left me with the boat. I got it figured out and when we sold it I took my share and some
