While your loss is truly painful. I found great inspiration in the story it self..
I am new to sailing and i guess the thing that spooks me the most is " your on your own". In your story, people came to your rescue and would not give up if you forced them at gun point.

Your not ever alone i guess..

What an excellent story. I truly enjoy adversity against one's self. Please, get another boat and try again. You'll make it next time for sure!

Thanks, guys. My next boat is under construction now. Details are here: http://www.svbluepeter.com

Soon, I'll be on the water again and I'd like one more shot at that tricky pass.
