    Sounds like the same boat Last time I was up there she was in the water and listed for sale and I was sorely tempted, but the Columbia is noplace for that boat...she needs open water, not a big ditch.

    I tested yesterday Bruce. All clear. We were mostly outside and the case numbers in WA have dropped a lot recently so I think the risk is pretty low.

    Any single boat project will always expand to encompass the set of all possible boat projects.

    Life is short. Go boating now!

    Bruce, your situation and concern echoes mine. The presentation I gave on the Sunday of the festival was the first time I had been inside, unmasked, with a large group of people, in almost 3 years. I was feeling a little off yesterday but tested negative. If that changes, I'll update here.

    Bruce, we have tested negative twice since the festival. On the other hand our daughter in Boston is feeling poorly and appears to have the plague after a big gathering of the scientist she works among. Go figure.

    The HELMA project was very capably headed by Capt. Robert D'Arcy, skipper of the schooner MARTHA, which you would have noticed in the show. Robert and his boatbuilding partner, Doug Jones have earned a fine reputation for quality well-thought-out work in PT.

    Had a conversation with Captain Robert and crew on the dock alongside Martha on Thursday morning before the festival started. Didn't make the connection to Helma, which I had previously seen in Victoria a few days earlier.

    Hugh, if you go first north, then west, about 80 or so miles, there's all the open water you can use for 6,000 miles.
