  1. Got the Lindsey repaired enough to haul her over to Florida for the BEER Cruise in June. Still nothing on Tehani- Mast is down on saw horses here at house. Back doing fairly well- just using a walking stick now. But have dr's appt next friday to look at shoulders. Probably gonna need surgery- Getting old ain't for sissys

  6. LOL ,Oyster- I retired years ago. Hey, last birthday I turned 78! Haven't been able to do much sailing since I hurt my back. Injured it on a sailboat delivery down to Mexico. Gertting better slowly, so maybe can repair the baoat soon. AND I bought back a Lindsey 21 I've owned twice before. It has some damage also. Last trip I did was a singlehand one- 3 months, here in Texas to Florida and return. Good to see you still posting
