Hi Johnny,

Jay and Karen are in Oriental, NC, on the waterway. You should stop in to see them. We are going to see them this Sunday. They are up for a week to see Jason and his little girl Natalie. I will let them know your plans. They have the Fales navigator sloop in front of the house they built in Oriental. Girls are doing well. Krista just got engaged last Saturday. Tiff lives with here boyfriend in Manchester, NH. Chris & I moved back down to Rutland, MA in November. We are on my Dad's old farm. Animals and all. Here is Karen's email address diogenespkr@aol.com

Thanks for joining the Tabor Boy Project crew. Hope you have some sea stories or old photos that have been hiding in the back of a draw somewhere that you can share with us.
Fair Winds,
Peter
