Captain's Log, Stardate:

3/6/01

Arrived Canet!

Mary and I finally met our new home face-to-face! All of our fears were quickly dashed: It floats, the diesels run, and it was 98% done! She'll be hauled tomorrow for some final touches with sea trials to start Thursday.

Mary feels very confident I will be able to learn as much as I need to from the lady skipper they have picked out to teach me.

Will dash this off now and get some sleep!

Hope to see you "out there" sometime, as Cpt. Ron would say.

A Bientot!

Lee and Mary
