rockDAWG Just check the YW listing for HR, VD is in the Sale Pending status. Good luck and congrats to both parties. .

There was another one, HR39 in CT which has a boom furling sold in a week. It proves that a good boat still sells very well. Only the generic and ill-maintained boats have the problem of selling.


Got words from the broker, DV is still on sale, not sure why YW listed as such. Hurry, anyone who are interested in her - the Land Rover of the Seas. Damn, I wish I had rich parents

SVAuspicious Wayne,

You and Sally are always welcome aboard Auspicious if you find you would like a sailing fix.

Thanks for our conversations over the years.

Thanks for your contributions to the gems here

Wayne, you were such a helpful force in organizing the Photo Op of last year, I am ever grateful to you, Joe and his team for the brilliant idea that became so many beautiful pics for so many of us. I also visited your polishing paper. Had to print that off as it certainly looked worthy.

We know you will be missed here but it sounds like you are looking forward to the next chapter. There is always SOPB (sailiing other people's boats) and I am sure you will have no trouble finding a spot aboard if you miss it. I am so happy we got to meet at last year's photo op dinner.

Good luck with your sale of your beautiful s/v Virginia Dare. It will be a lucky person who gets that vessel.

best wishes for good health and fun times!!

mccary Wayne, it is a sad day for Chesapeake bay sailors. But, I am glad it is not a health/financial issue. Life is too short to hang on to things that do not turn you on and if lust for sailing has diminished, then it is time. Your efforts on behalf of our Sailnet group have been appreciated and you will be missed. If there is a time when you want to step back on a sailboat let any of us know I am sure we would all compete to host you for a day or longer.

Fair winds in your next passion.

NautiG Bummer dude! I'll toast one in your honor next time I'm out on the Pax, if you promise to do so in my honor next time you're at an O's game. I'm pretty much stuck watching minor league baseball down here in Richmond. But at least our team wins occasionally.

Fair winds!

JohnRPollard Wayne,

All the very best to you. That sounds like a great lifestyle you'll be focussing on now. Enjoy it!! But there's no reason you have to be a complete stranger, either. Stop in anytime and say "hi". We'd love to hear about your travels/adventures whether you go by boat or boeing. Cheers - John

saillife Wayne,

I've never met you but, I'd like to thank you for the polishing instructions. I used them this year and the outcome was amazing!. I truly appreciate the time & effort you put into sharing them.
Best wishes & good luck in your future endeavors.

chef2sail Wayne,

As I said in my private e mail to you, you and Sally are one of the nicest couples we have met on the Chesapeake. You love for life and great conversation will always be appreciated. Your posts have been extrodinary. Every time I look at the beautiful pictures Joe took on that dreary September day of all of our boats on the photo shoot I remember it was you who organized it and kept it together ( even though I thought I ticked you off when I jumped the start).

You and Sally will always be in Donna and my thoughts, and when ever you get the yen for a sail, e mail us. wed love to have you come with us anytime.

wingNwing Best wishes for Act II (or Act III, or whichever - curious people try lots of interesting things) I've enjoyed the small amount of time we've spent together at the MYC gatherings and the photo op.
