AS-29 fan and avid blog reader visits the boatyard
Not only is Bill a big fan of all things boat building and sailing, he and his wife are ham radio operators. They hail from Cahutta, Georgia near Dalton, Chattanooga and the Georgia-Tennessee border. Bill has built and is learning to sail a $200 sailboat for which he stitched his own poly-tarp sail.
Karen and I proudly gave the boatyard tour of Shallow Minded, Ember's Watch and the new-to-us SeaPearl 21 which remains yet unnamed.
Speaking of Ember's Watch, Bill Moffitt the builder came by the day before and did a boatyard tour. We had a great time discussing our plans and dreams. I love like-minded visitors. It re-enforces our efforts to get through the outfitting stage and on to the adventure stage.
It's freezing cold in north Georgia right now. As I said to Karen, the boatyard crew is on strike until the weather improves.
