Duane,
Great to have you on the site. We must have crossed paths a few times over the years and perhaps sailed together. I appreciate your story of being in the 30 foot seas. It is times like that which really bring out the abilities of the crew. It amazes me looking back at how young we were and the present crews are; and yet they are so capable of dealing with the sea.
Welcome and thanks for joining,
Jamie '79
