Yeah, well, having lost nothing crossing the Atlantic, I managed to lose 5 of the 6 cushions for the foredeck, while tied up in Waterford.

Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but 5.

Next time you are in there send me a pm. I will tell you my little secret. You were lucky. The Gasprilla Inn claims jurisdiction over the lagoon. The have security patrols catching dinghies tied up.

Spying on Daddyo

Haven't seen any pictures from Grace for a while. We left Cape May NJ harbor at 0530 this morning and look who is anchored in the harbor.
