Actually I'm right about a lot of things. But it doesn't surprise me that you don't/can't see that.

Now I'm blushing. But seriously, I would like to meet you one of these days. I noted a possible talk on the Gulf Coast of Florida which of course is of interest as I'm in that region.

In the meantime, enjoy your adventure. As for me, I'm glad I can get some rest after watching the crossing. The miracles of instant messaging was something else.

Back in the day (putting on my old-fogy slippers) even VHF radios were not on boats -- not on ours anyway. After getting caught offshore in a hurricane Mother put down her boat shoes and said get a radio. $1,000 later, we had one, which mandated a 12-volt system, batteries, charging generator and more.

Each decision leads to more. At a certain point the wise stop.

Back then I continued to use the oil lantern in my cabin. Today, even though I have LEDs on Seaweed, well, I'm comfortable with the light from oil lanterns. Except for cleaning the overhead (soot) I still prefer 'em.

Anyway, I'll hush now.

Congratulations Julie and have a wonderful journey.

Very surprising IMO to have done what you did and say you would do it over again with no changes.
