Hi jim, I received your name from Christi Grab and it looks like you have some good adventures to follow. i have not checked your vessels technical details, but Christi remembered you might have some knowledge of Wesmar stabilizers. I am considering a N-40 with Wesmars(2005) and will appreciate any insight you can provide me. Happy Voyaging, David

Hello! My name is Freddy Grant. I am a gynecologist in Meridian, Mississippi. I was at the Da Vinci robotic meeting in Celebration City today. I met your daughter Holly Lyle. She was telling someone else about meeting you soon and living on the boat for a month. I love boats and scuba diving so of course I jumped into the conversation. We use to have a 38 Ocean Sportfish. I had it from 1996 until 2005. My kids enjoyed it and we had some good times fishing on the Alabama gulf coast. I sold it when they got out of college. Even though we have a condo, I still miss staying on the boat. Unfortunately , my wife does not. Anyway, you two are living the dream that I have always had. Good luck in you travels. Please put me on your email list. Freddy Grant

Congrats on your first Grandbaby graduating high school! How is it that I met that little freckle face toe-head at age 6!!! Love that boy. Miss you all and heard Holly Renee was headed out shortly. Didn''t make it to the Keys in my "window" of time but that''s life. Be safe and I told Holly to watch out for Big Numba and Little Numba Men..LOL! Love Liz
