Gary,I'm back home, although there were times when I thought I wasn't going to make it home ever again.
I thought this short story would be amusing to some of the forum members.
All the best,
It is great to see you posting again, and and even better to hear that you were out on the water again. I deeply saddened that you had such a rough time out there and are hanging up your boat shoes and selling the boat. You are one tough old bird if you can sail 142 miles in 5 to 6 foot seas and 25 to 30 knot winds no matter what point of sail you are on.
It sounds like you were around the corner from my home on Mill Creek off Whitehall Bay. I missed the chance for a Travelin-easy sighting.
Hopefully, you will be able to get some decent sails in before you need to part ways with your beloved Morgan.
