I was intrigued by the slightly off-topic sentences at the very end of the report:



I've snorkeled off the east coast of Oz with my wife, but we both lived to tell the tale. :)

Very sad news. I don't know if pulling up the ladder would have bought them enough time. What a terrible thing. :(

She'll be at the Annapolis Boat Show? That's cool. How do we find her there?

Heh, good story, Hawkeye. I wonder if that couple is still married.

One of the sailing magazines ran a related story a few months ago. Forgive me if I have the details wrong. Anyway, the author...

How far away is your boat?

I don't own a boat (yet), and I'm wondering whether it's impractical to use a marina that's an hour's drive away. I live in the northwestern suburbs of DC, which are about an hour away from...

Ah, at least I was right about the vintage of the picture. It's a pretty good scan for such an old photo.

I doubt I'm right, but in case I am, I won't be able to...

Oh, and I'll guess Gibraltar, just because I see a rock in the background. :)

I'm still up because I'm in Hawaii right now. But while the scene is familiar, I can't place it. Nice pic, by the way.

I'm not sure about how many guesses we can make before T37Solare posts again. I'd say we should at least refrain from listing every quaint town in Maine. :)

Why not CNG?

I live near the Chesapeake, but I don't have a boat yet. I've noticed, though, that several places at the Chesapeake do exchange CNG tanks, including the marina I'd be most likely to use. If and...
