Welcome to this side Gerbe and glad to hear things are going good for you....watch that Seattle snow. I was out there in about 74' or 75' putting a ship through the yards over in Bremerton when it snowed 3-4 inches....I was amazed coming from the midwest, it literally shut that place down....of course all of us sailors had a ball, but then....that's another whole story!!
Again, welcome to this side, take time and heal....
