We have been looking for our new boat - without success - and recently traveled to Rhode Island to look at a Pearson 424. I took a surveyor but within minutes determined that this was not the boat for us since everywhere we touched it needed a project of its own. After determining we were not interested we asked the Broker from Bluenose if he could show us anything else. He said he could and we went to Essex, CT and a small town in MA (I forget the name right now). We looked at a Niagria 42 and a Whitby 42: I liked both. The Niagria was out of my price range and the Whitby did not have a genset and A/C.
So it was back to Indiana and the Great Search to start again. In the mean time, I have become interested in ham radio and sending traffic at sea. To this end I complied with the winlink.org procedures and submitted for an email account. I now have a way to receive email at sea and the address is K9CWM@winlink.org - while not at sea I use RMS Express so feel free to start emailing me. I check the email about once per day just as if I am at sea.
Keep me in your prayers so that I may find the passage maker of dreams and 73's to all. Chuck.
