It is exactly one year ago today that I announced the purchase of the “Fleetwood” success(or).

I found my life raft a 2-4 person older model hard pack Beaufort raft, for $ 150. And a few other smaller items at last Saturday’s Fisheries Supplies swap-meet. My next major item will be the solar panel. Looking for a used 6 x 6 foot wide arch like the one on the old “Fleetwood” (see above picture). Your suggestions are appreciated.

I am packing my bag for Saturday’s flight to Amsterdam. Leaving the boat tomorrow and stay Friday night with Lisa, she’ll take me to SeaTac o Saturday morning. On her 51st Birthday….. I’ll be back May 8th.

SOLOMAN is done. The Dutch version. It is now being edited. 370 pages. And working on the cover.

Gorgeous day here in Gig Harbor. A few hardy teenagers were already diving off the Stanich dock, a while ago.
