Awesome story. "Giblet bag" -- I'm gonna use that one!


Very good! Sounds like a fun party.

Reminds me of the story of the couple found naked in the middle of the Caribbean between St Lucia and Martinque: they had gone skinny dipping and their yacht had sailed off without them.


I wanted to drop by to say hi. I found your blog and am thrilled to find other sailors/cruisers!

I can't wait to get to the BVIs. I haven't gotten farther south then Key West, yet!

Loved this one. Inspired me to write down the details of a story I've been telling of my own for the past 22 years:

mental foreplay

It so good to find your blog and can read something interest and different.keep writing.

white collar crime defense

Better keep it moderate next time.
