Shoal Survivor is Sold... but I'm not going anywhere.

Shoal Survivor is Sold... but I'm not going anywhere.

As some of you know, Shoal Survivor is sold and I have a new ride, an F-24 trimaran. I've gone back to my roots with a sporty boat. I wouldn't want to cruise her for weeks, but so far she's a blast to day sail, and I look forward to a few overnights; the cabin isn't bad for one or a couple, for a quiet night.

Going up to see what is wrong. I love the Mast Mate. I've had it through 3 boats, for over 20 years.

I'll still be here. I have too many PDQ friends to leave. The PDQ manual MS Word doc will remain available, as will my blog. I'll be posting more projects, some applicable to PDQs, though some a little different. I have the same masthead instruments I had before, and just the same, they've been broken by blunt trauma.

Once, long ago, I took down a web site related to rock climbing. I sold the business, but I should have left some of the information up. Since, I have vowed never to take a Blog down or to completely abandon it. I have two others, although they are less active:

Rock and ice climbing:

Kayaking the Chesapeake. This one is probably more interesting to sailors. Really, it's about cruising:

Drew, I really value your contributions here, and I appreciate your generosity in publishing your blog. I often search that blog and your entries here in search of wisdom. Thank you so much.

I'm glad you're sticking around.
