as a part of the latter group I never feel like I have left long enough to forget it...having said that I find myself staring into a full moon night(here in the cities you never can see stars on moonless nights, so thenext best thing is the glaring nights) many times and just go back in time to those large rollers and tradewinds and friends and the rolling, the boat swaying...the windvane on...the sounds...the sea birds the flapping of a sail, the QUIET despite ALL the actuvity going on

I have made a promise to myself, to God to my family that I WILL GO BACK and show them what the sea is, what the WORLD is...

its getting away from the MACHINE that never stops eating like MOITESSIER wrote about back in the 50s in his writings thats important for me

HOWEVER im fully aware that in order to do so in this insane and powerhungry world that you have to make $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ in order to acheive those dreams as trading and bartering and working for free seems to have dissapeared into the oblivion or abyss of histories past.

so with that said

never stop dreaming guys and never stop DOING as when you do so you die before your body actually expires...

sail the soul guys

PEACE

Those look amazing! We are definitely in need of some new padding for all the seating in the boat. The PO, I am sure, cleaned the seat covers when in use but the are fading fast and need to be redone. Thankfully my girlfriend is an expert seamstress. So we are covered! Love the look of the teak!

please enjoy her

I still have my boat down in el salvador...some prospective buyers but none pull the trigger...

Im really said I dont have her closer to me so I can finish the project up

it makes me happy though that my ramblings and work at least help others in their projects on the same boat.

someday Ill either get my islander back up here or sell here to somebody with the same goals and dreams

till then happy sailing to all

Christian, glad to see that you still check these! Thank you very much! We are going to be trying our best to document our upgrade as we go as well. I am a web developer and figured since it is my job, I might as well use my skills to help myself out.Minimally Simply Happily. Check it out in a bit. It is still quite bare.

The best of luck with the job and the family. Sailing and the love of ocean is not something that most people can wrap their heads around after all. Good luck with the boat! Hopefully you are able to see her again. :-)
