Since 1978 I have been fortunate to sail wooden boats. In 2006 I set out to find a Drascombe Longboat Cruiser for single-handed expedition sailing. This is the continuing story of how it came to be, our adventures, notes on the maritime world and other things I don't want to forget...

While in St. Augustine I went by my friend Edward's sail loft. We go back a long way and he has repaired sails, made covers for my boats, and helped me out uncountable times. He co-founded SPARS, a not-for-profit that teaches kids to sail in Optimist prams. If you're ever blown out or just down that way let me know and I'll give you directions...
Ed always looked good in pink
It's in there somewhere
Ordered chaos. Old guys seem to like to work that way.
