Hello Everyone,

Long time no post. I’ve lurked a lot though….wow have things changed from the early days. Anyway, keep your fingers crossed for me tomorrow. It’s the big day, 24 miles across Cape Cod Bay.

http://www.capecodbaychallenge.org/

Now that all the planning and training for this is over I’ll start spending some more time in the shop and you’ll see my smiling face here again more often. I have some paddles waiting in the wings and a few other fun projects to blog once I get them going. I’ll get the Sketchup stuff rolling again too.

Fairwinds and a good sea!

-- Bob

Best of luck. Just be sure to hit the Cape… be a real bummer to go right past it and then have to go all the way to Britain. ha
