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.

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!

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
