Appologies to the group, but these are strange times and require some slack due to extreme conditions..
Yesterday, after just over a three week stay in a boat yard for a bottom job, and normal sundry maintence, and hurricane delays, we launched at 0800 because the then forcast for Hurricane Jeannie showed it would come in NORTH of the Palm Beaches. What a mistake. We are now in the cross hairs of a hurricane again arriving in our new slip in Jupiter, FL at 1300 after an uneventful passage. Lots to do for storm prep because all the gear we offloaded for Frances we reloaded for our relocation, and now has to be removed again. We are in a much more hazardous position in our slip than we would have been in the yard. However, the marina is considered a Hurricane Hole, and their are many boats seeking shelter. To name just two, Tiger Woods, and Jack Nichloson.
BTW, this hook-up is courtesey of Kinko's, a great company. It is Friday at 0316.
If we surivive this one, we are:

Jupiter, FL 33477
Doug, I'll look forward to your contact. Bell South has failed us again, and we are without a land line or email other than this one.
All the best,
