|Message||Boy! Lady you sure are living the life! I just happened upon your website while looking for nothing in particular, just a lazy Sunday afternoon while fixing dinner for my man and I. I really enjoyed the adventure and stories on your website. It was definitely thought provoking as I retired from a job after 33 years just 2 years ago, and almost immediately began another! I've not sailed on a boat smaller than the Carnivale Mardi Gras (1988)or most recently last year on the Liberty of the Seas (Royal Caribbean). My man is a merchant seaman by trade and navigates container ships for Maersk, so we are somewhat connected to the sea! I have bought him cameras and a videocam to capture some of the dolphins, stingray and other sea life he tends to see off the bough of the ships he navigates. Thank you for the experience you share with everyone who reads and views your website!|

It's been a while. Hoping and praying that all is well with the both you and September Sea!
Justin and Alex are eleven. They are great kids. I am very proud of them. I am still planning for my retirement on the seas.
Will I see you guys in 2013 in SF for the Cup. I learned how to sail in the bay. I am there for sure!

|Message||I will be a visitor here more often. To go from the "country life" to the sea is such a scary thought for me, let alone doing it!! LOL!! I have never been near a vast expanse of water, but always dreamed of it. My knees are sore from land work!!LOL!!!|

|Message||Hi Charly!! Love your website, I feel like I've been sucked into a noval, can't stop reading your story of how it all came about. Now I understand why you write like a poet. I'm looking forward to reading about you and Bill and can't wait to get to the pics! When I said "I want your life", I meant it! Perhaps one day..... but for now, I'll just have to live it through your eyes.|

Hi Jeff! Congrats! Told ya she is a fast and slick vessel born to FLY! I just love it and am so very happy for you. About those slider fronts and/or trim for the cockpit coaming lockers: I DO know of a place that makes those (including the frame) but I have to dig through my info to find it. Unfortunately, I never added them here to the website where they'd be easy to find! I will find the company. They can make those to your exact specs., reasonably priced too. FOUND IT: http://updplastics.com Contact info is on their homepage, you can see some examples too. Very very nice and easy to talk to; just let them know what you need. Big Hugs!!

|Message||Hi Charmaine: I am now the proud owner of "Old Guys Rule" - a lovely Lancer 36. We have a shopping list of miscellaneous repairs to do which is being whittled down wekend by weekend. An intractable problem though is the frames for the sliders in the hatches in the cockpit. These are heavily chipped and embrittled - I've looked everywhere for replacements with no success - any ideas?|
FYI we were doing 7.2 knots over the ground in about 20 knots breeze with the genoa alone! This with a fixed 3 blade prop - can't wait to get a folding 3 blade on her!
Regards to you both: Jeff L.
