Just to be clear...we are saving a vessel that is not a pedigree, not particularly historic and that contemporary society would deem disposable. Still, i do see her as a resource, with timbers that may have been saplings when the pilgrims landed, she has a lot of strength and sturdiness left to her and the only reason most others would toss her aside is for lack of knowledge or cost of labor does not balance against cost of item to be retained. I, for one, I do not agree with our disposable or consumer society.

Hi Jerrid,

I appreciate your perspective and respect. Knowledge and exposure to broad variety of life are huge in creating a sense of comfort with this type of thinking. 

It will still be some time before I can make it to La Paz to meet you and S/V Salvation .. doing so is still in my mind. Still a few details to take care of on my end.

Best

Kendall

If you have used Float Plan to find a boat or a crew member, or had a good experience using the website, being part of the community or you just love what we are trying to do (make sailing accessible to everyone), I would really appreciate a quick note that I could use as a testimonial on the new website. Thank you, Andrew
