Hi Opa, I don't have any knowledge of your situation to give you any thoughts/advice, but I did want to say thanks for the update. And to wish you well. Good luck with the sailing. I've never been able to understand why people would sail when outboard motors are available --- but it probably has to do with my being invited at 16 to go sailing with a friend, on a windy day, to find my job seemed to be hanging way out over the side of the boat to provide ballast to keep us somewhat upright. If I wasn't out far enough to suit the skipper he'd yell at me. I understood what it meant to be between the devil and the deep blue sea.
Keep us posted on PCa and your sailing.
