Vroom Vroom......

A few weeks ago I had my favorite diving lady Evelyn and her son install my Campbell Sailer propeller.  I was just waiting for Guru Jim to get out from under his usual long list of client projects to install my steering pedestal and steering system.  As usual, because he treats me as family, I am at the bottom of the list.  But today I decided to kick the transmission into gear and see if anything blew up.  TIH is securely, I hoped, tied up in her slip;

Seeing that this was the first time in 18 years that TIH has moved under her own steam (if only 18ins) this was a sort of momentous occasion.

As soon as Jim connects the steering. Its too exciting without that, even in Miami.

Use the emergency tiller. Time to get out and go for a ride!

Gerry,

I've been out of the loop for a while. Just found out about your operation. I would like to say that from our conversations by e-mail and meeting you in person I know that your sprit is strong and you WILL kick this mothers ASS!

Be Well,

Alex
