Happy Independence Day Friends!



Apologies for not posting in a while but life sometimes has a funny way of getting in the way of dreams... 

Many thanks to my friend Josef however,  who has given me a much needed poke with his most recent comment, "So, that's it? " 

No Josef, that is absolutely not it...  That said, you may be asking yourself where has the Curious Sailor been?

Well, I'm happy to report that the boat is still up on blocks so I know I did that correctly- and you don't have to imagine me as a pancake under her hull anymore (C'mon I know some of you pondered this  in my absence... ) 

Seriously though, aside from a busy work schedule and some other life changes I did in fact, almost scrap the entire project. That's why I have not posted for some time...

While working on the boat I discovered many hidden defects that seriously compromised the structural integrity of the vessel and I simply wasn't sure if  I had the knowledge, skill, or even funds to bring her back to life...  

Luckily, I'm  blessed  -or cursed-  with persistence, perseverance, and determination so I'm happy to tell you I have not given up!  I just haven't written about it in awhile... 

I truly believe that persistence, perseverance, and determination are equally or even more important than knowledge, skill, and funds. The latter can always be acquired while the former must be inherent! This has been my message from the start and my motivation for the project. 

When I started this blog I promised to share my trials and tribulations, successes and failures for which I have experienced both.  Thank you again Josef for reminding me...

I may have hit some rough seas however,  I know the calm is just ahead... 
As the saying goes, " Smooth seas make not a good Sailor..." 

Our journey continues friends... Stay tuned for more posts...
