    All,

    Many of you have asked me if I am going to document our trip up through New England this year. I am... It will be on the following web site:

    http://foursuns.blogspot.com/

    I hope this hasn't violated any rules as other people have their own boating websites they post here as well.

    I'm going to be putting my writings on other boating stuff/maintenance/repairs/stupid humor/etc. over on that site as well so I can control the content like I want.

    If you all want, I can put a post here when it's updated or, better yet, you can subscribe to it.

    Hope you all enjoy.

    Gary, you could put one of those SPOT locater devices on your boat then publish the site so anybody can view it anytime. It would be a real time locater for where you are at any given time on your trip. Might be a cool interactive addition to your site.

    That would be a neat option Jim! Gary, good luck on your cruise! I like that pic on the front page, that's a very nice boat! Keep the pics/story coming!

    Coast...cost...coast...cost. What's on your mind? After reading all the maintenance and upgrades, and... well lets just say you probably paid for my little boat. Red right returning, shallow alarm, crab pots and the like. Lets not read about you running over a coral head or something. Wish I were you. Mike

    Great idea. I can hear someone's teeth gnashing in frustration already.
