This week may be a little hairy for me. I do not yet know whether I'll
need to help bring our sailboat back up to the Bay Area from Monterey,
so my presence on the lists will depend on that. A few off-shore storm
systems muffed up the return schedule so I'm on-call now. I'd

California coast usually means upwind sailing in heavier seas == I'll
be cold, miserable, and seasick...

really true that the second happiest day in a boat owner's life is the
day he buys it -- and the happiest is the day he sells it? :o)
