Just about to complete the a/c install in the aft cabin. This should open up the summer months to some more cruising.

In the mean time, came across a couple of quotes by Richard Bode that resonates with me;

" I have a choice, the same choice that faces every man. I can live a frivolous life, trying to impress others with the house I live in, the clothes I wear, the car I drive. I can strive to be a success in the way of the world, seeking the admiration of others, reveling in their jealousy. I can seek domination over my family and fellow workers in a vain attempt to hide my own deficiencies. I can seek fame, which is the most elusive pursuit of all, for it has no substance and soon vanishes in the air.
I can indulge in endless prattle about my friends and neighbours, dissipating my life's energy a little at a time. I can wallow in self-pity, refusing to accept responsibility for my own circumstances. I can manipulate others into taking care of me, which is the way of all petty tyrants. I can complain about boredom, as if it were up to those around me to inject excitement into my day.
These are the patterns of the living dead, people who have forsaken life, who are willing to squander their most precious gift, because they refuse to face up to the reality of death. If they wanted to live, truly wanted to live, they would rise up in a resurrection of their own making and commit themselves to the life they have."


and


" Please don't let me gather dust lying on the shelf of mediocrity or get mired in the forever sloping pit of others expectations, so that I will say on the day of my death, I have never lived'. I already know everything about my fate that I need to know; I will grow old and die. Until then let me raise my sails and billow in the wind "

This is the party to celebrate our "mostly ready" CSY 44 walkthrough sailboat. After roughly 3 months of non-stop work, she was ready for her "coming out" party.

From the time I first saw her in Mobile, Alabama until she is ready to sail. Projects on top of projects, and then some more.
