Well we did it!

It took us 18 days to sail this Island Packet 350 from Palmas del Mar, PR to Weems, VA. Crew was Tom Abernathy, Capt., Park Terrell, owner, Kevin Donovin, crew and myself. Pictures are posted and I will post more of the story later.

It's almost time!

Well I board a flight for San Juan, PR on the 20th. We hope to leave Palmas de Mar, PR heading for Weems, VA the next day. We will have a laptop and satellite phone on board so I am hoping I can update this site, we will see.

Welcome Spring!

The slipholders and guests enjoyed a brisk First Day of Spring in our 3rd Annual Carter's Cove Marina Sock Burning. The trip from Puerto Rico to the Chesapeake Bay is on. We leave on the 20th of April and hope to be back at Carter's Cove in the first week of May.

We will have a satellite phone and computer on board so I hope to be able to update this website underway.

Good News and Bad News!

Well I had my surgical consult on the 9th of March about my left wrist. A new doctor asked me if I received any pain relief from the wrist injection and I told him no. After looking at my x-rays and reading the history notes on my last visit he said that he could understand why I had not received any pain relief. He said that they had injected the wrong joint on my left wrist. They have injected the right joint now and I have to wait 2 months to see if it is going to help. I do not mean to demean the VA. They have great staff and doctors and they really care about the patients.

Because of the uncertainty of my wrist problems I lost my spot on the Bristol 55 but I just got a birth on a IP350 from Puerto Rico to the Chesapeake. We leave April 18th. Will keep you informed.

I hope this all works out!

I have a March 9th surgical consult on my left wrist (same problem as with the right wrist). I have also received a request to help deliver a Bristol 55 from Tortola in the BVI's to the US in mid May. I would love to do this trip but I have to have my wrist surgery in March so I would have a month and a half to rehab before the trip. So this trip depends on the VA. This trip would help in getting me over my open ocean fears after the hurricane Alex trip. Will let everybody know as soon as I know the logistics.

They will always be a "SHE".

A boat is called "she" because she is graceful and attractive,
spirited and fun, and she has her own ways of doing things.

She won't tolerate your clumsiness or sloppiness,
and yelling she'll just ignore.

But if you know just how to ask her for what you want,
and treat her right,

then she'll make you a good home and never let you down.
