rkfitz I spoke with Jodi at the Newport boat show, she said she is doing fine and she looked great. With the bad economy, ad revenue is down and they can't afford to finish the Shannon.

hellosailor Bob's a player. I'd bet his buck bought him first rights of refusal against any other buyer on the Shannon, and Shannon in turn is getting lots of free press while basically building one large new hull "on spec" hoping they'll be able to sell it when it is complete.

If Bob can sell shares...all's fair in love and war, that's a good way to make a profit too, isn't it?

mitiempo Looks like all small gauge wire - it pays to be self sufficient. I think tinned marine wire may be hard to find in the South Pacific and expensive if you do find it.

Interaxions with such a beautifully maintained vessel - why would they need such an extensive WIRE inventory - this worries me as I am looking at a formosa 51 - also well kept - I know things break at sea but....EXQUISITE SHIP!

Google Translate detects it as Japanese but the translation doesn't go so well:

Wolfman4u I don't even know why Iam on this website as Iam a old school Hermosa Beach Ca biker and know nothing about sailboats and have great respect fo Bob Bitchen Lipken for he knows how to live his dream and can put it in writing. Believe it or not sailors are kinda like bikers because we love adventure, we are clickish and belong to clubs, we like to party and even have tatoos and Bob like myself have met all these conditions. Live you Dream
