    looking forward to part 3 of your outfitting vids. I hope interior layout will be the topic. I have a 32 foot Islander that is set up in the dinette configuration. I don’t much care for it though rebuilding in a better configuration may be too expensive to be practical.Any opinion?

    Well I missed the opportunities you took advantage of. I am not fit to sail any more
    but enjoy the read. I recently finished a Redwing 21 with a 25 hp High Thrust Yamaha.

    My wife and I just physically can’t do the sailing anymore at 70. I have found many
    former sailors that are older going to small motor boats. Our attempt to keep in the game — “Baxter” — was designed for Chesapeake Bay, shallow draft, did 5 weeks there. Have explored Yellowstone Lake, Flaming Gorge and this Fall the Missouri R. above Pierre, SD. We
    are always the smallest boat in the marina, usally the only wood one, and it is all paid for.

    I wish I could have done what you have done earlier, but you can’t live two lives I guess.
