***** LOST AT SEA ***** Our adventure continues - they were unable to repair the engine and we are sailing along at a maximum speed of 16 knots. We are going so slow that we will be unable to visit Half Moon Cay - we are proceeding directly to St. Thomas. A team from Holland America is flying in there to attempt to make engine repairs. It appears that we will be in St. Thomas until the repairs are complete - how long we don't know. This is truly an excellent adventure - the weather was perfect today and we're having a great time. Losing an engine on a boat is much better than losing one on an airplane. Stay tuned for more of this continuing saga...Let's hope they get back under sail soon.

My next two steps involve contracts and a website for myself.
Above the chair rail will be the red, below will be the tan, and the trim will be the white (which looks a lot whiter in person). We finally found colors we could both agree on. I'm sad there's no chocolate brown, but I think it'll look nice.
