Letting go!?

Had a call from the thief-oops-the friend to whom I sold my ODay 28, saying that after a very satisfying delivery voyage in which I participated, the engine wouldn't start. After an hour of easter-egging this afternoon, I believe I found the cuprit-a corroded connection that had failed and needs to be replaced. What I was NOT prepared for were the changes already underway-the new VHF, the solar-powered vent ready to be installed during the next good-weather window... He was doing exactly what we had done when we first got the boat-CHANGING things. Come to think of it, that's exacltly what we did when we got the latest boat. Thanks for listening/reading-whatever. It WAS nice to be rocking-the boat is in a slip right now.
