Re: Charles W. Morgan viewing

Saw that also through several miles of haze. The next day, we saw on the news that the USS Missouri had come home, so that must have been her.

Bonus points to anyone that can answer this...

Re: New England sailors?

I think the best location relative to the airport depends a lot on how "hands on" you plan to be with maintenance when you get to the boat.

I was definitely in the do-it-yourself camp when I did...

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

In some ways, I think we suffer as movie-goers by bringing a sailor's perspective into the theater to see All Is Lost. To expect to see an able sailor aboard a well-found vessel is really to ask to...
