a paragraph or two couldn't do it justice, but in a nut shell, (thanks Redbopeep for giving me the opportunity) I built a 31' sailboat from the keel up in Johannesburg, South Africa during the uprising in the mid seventies and trucked her to a fresh water lake for a year where my wife and I had a fabulous time learning to sail her and meeting friends etc, then trucked her a thousand miles to Cape Town (Johannesburg is landlocked by six hundred miles
We had another round of great fun and some very scary experiences
in the stormy cape. I then cruised from the Cape to the west indies and beyond into the Pacific and onwards. If I may say at this stage that I wrote a book about all these experiences (took ten years to write!) has lots of color pics and reads like a novel. It is an ebook, and if there are any readers on the forum interested, I will gladly give you the link. I don't want to abuse my privileges here....
Y'all take care now!
