During this trip I met Gary Taylor from Slidell, Louisiana.
Since leaving in May of 2001 my family and I have sailed the "Hogfish maximus "across the Atlantic visiting 19 country's and many anchorages, sailing 26,000 miles. We have built by our selves two small houses on our land in the Bahamas. Our oldest daughter Kalessin is 24 now and works in the top end of the Mega yacht world. She is on the M/Y Lady Linda in the Med no. Lillian, our youngest, is 19 and has just finished her first year of collage at UF in Gainesville, Florida on a merit scholarship.
Rachel and I plan a life of sailing and she keeps a weather eye for what is around the next bend. (ed.)
