All right, I am back. I am undergoing a lot of changes: I am working a new job in Ontario, Ca. I am selling my house and moving to the Big Island. The house sale is first in line for my energy. After Monday, I will have the house carpeted and I can concentrate on my ocean crossing. In the meantime, I have a new forestay from Colligo Marine, and a new screacher on the roller furler. the sail from somerset Sails will have to wait for a real test but it looks awesome.
