Part of my time over the last two weeks has been driving first to Annapolis (twice) and then to Rock Hall, MD to help Ed Hart, my dock mate purchase a Cascade 29. This is a sister boat to the one that Ed used to solo circumnavigate about 15 years ago. That boat cost him $5,000. This one only $1,500. I could see by the gleam in his eye that he was seriously considering using this new boat to set off again this coming November. It does not seem to be in the cards. The boat needs too much work to be ready. So now it is on the hard in Rock Hall while each of use continue to work on our respective boats getting ready for a November departure to the Caribbean, and if things continue OK to the Panama Canal and Hawaii.

More on the Indonesian volcano. We are now 300 nautical miles west of it. We met many nice people in our visit to the area. We hope the are all safe.
