Hi Mary+Dick;
How is everything with you people, Great I hope.My son Richard and his friend and my wife Louise and myself are going to be on the island on 08/09/03 and will be on island about six days and was thinking of stopping by to say Hi. Will you people be available? If so please E-Mail me back and let us know. If you are going to be available I would love to stop by to visit and have you tell us about your adventure on the white cap. I have your whole trip printed out here at home. I have been following it for quite a while and enjoy reading about your adventure. Will you be writing a book when the trip is over? We will be coming in a 27 foot motorhome that I bought couple of months ago. It is a trial run for this motorhome and if it is O.K.on this trip, we will be going to new Mexico in nov. on returning from Aruba for a month or so.

Your friends the Massachusetts Wedge's

Hi, great site. Sitting here with Dave Black. He has been staying with us as he gathers needed items before he returns to Linda and their boat there on Sunday. We have enjoyed his stories of their adventures during his visit. Wish we were there! Love the pictures.

Got Cajun Spirit bottom all painted with one coat except under the rear pads, was saving the last qt of paint for a final coat. Turns out the "last can of paint" was Red VC Offshore...
Lucky we have 2 ounces of blue left in an old can, for under the back pads!!!.
Hope you are enjoying Paris, wear your Tilley's...

the phone # you want for M Card is 1-800-263-3263. They would not take Mom's word, just like Guatemala, the women don't count and do not need body guards!!!, so you have to call from where you are for the Mastercard. EnRoute is now cancelled and the new replacement cards are on the way here.
Blake Craig and I are to put the track on tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon, the bottom is all pressure washed and needs some sanding before paint on Thursday and Friday. Will be launching on Saturday AM.

Hola Shang and crew
Nice to hear you are moving along, our guess is next stop is Chincerro bank, north end, but could be wrong.
Anyway, need Pat's daughter mailing address or e-mail so I can send the pictures of the mast in progress last winter. Now of course since you are using it, pictures of her construction may not be important...
All is well here, Al Boily was in for a swim past Saturday,, brrr he had to sit in his hot tub with a rum to warm up. On the Rio we just sit in the shade with a rhum to cool off!!!
Have fun, as you can see Richard and Maureen are in Europe with the kids, Cajun Spirit is going in next Sat.

Hi Richard and Maureen and Ben and Alix
Boats "in" went well, Al Boily is the leading contender for Man overboard award this early in the season!!!
Just B Martin, Cudmore and Cajun Spirit left in the shed. Blake is at the Y Club but waiting for next Sat to launch.
Re-Installing the track today (Sunday), and cleaning up the place.
Temp 14C yesterday and today at last after 3 weeks of cloudy cold days, last night was the first time we did not have the wood stove lit...

We are now in Venice, enjoying the canals, and riding the large "water taxis" We were in Parma yesterday, and we went to the Ferrari museum just outside Modena, everything there was RED!!!!! The day before we were in Cinqueterre and we went down twisty turny, slow roads with millions of blind turns. We also went to Portofino where we found a new boat moto: (it's hush hush for a while). We will return to tuscany at 12 (7 AST) and go to Montepulciano and stay in the region for a few nights. We will go to Rome on Monday and Paris on Wednesday to go to EuroDisney (Yipee!). We hope Cajun Spirit get's in soon and see you all in a week.
P.S. I (richard) will contact Bacon and Associates about the sail (Goodbye Myah!) this week from Italy.

Hi Richard, Maureen, Ben and Alix, glad to hear you arrived safely in Italy. Sounds like you are having fun, drive carefully.
You are not missing much here, rained all week so far, cold as H_ll and temp only 5C brrr. Have not been able to do much work on Cajun Spirit, so it looks like we will not be launching on Saturday. Have repaired the damage to the track and it is ready to reinstall.
Just too cold to go up and work in the shed, same again today. There will only be White Tigers, Sunrise, Bill Martin launching this week. We will go in the next launch.
Mom is following your progress on the map of Italy she found in an old National Geographic.

Buongiorno. We have arrived in one piece, Richard has learned very quickly to drive like an Italian (Maureen). Spent the first night in Cortona and the second in Poggibonsi. So far lots of olive trees and vineyards. Cortona was founded in 700 BC. The kids are learning to eat many new foods. The scenery is bellissimo and the temperature is hot but comfortable. We are heading for Pisa today then Riomaggiore on the west coast.

Hi LeRoy and Carolyn and Pat
Couple of things... need Pat's daughter snail mail address to send CD of mast construction progress laast winter.
Weeks delay just makes it boat launch at about the right time up here why launch and l;et her sit there for nothing anyway???

Best regards to Francis in Belize City, and Lisa (our taxi lady) if you see her. We stopped at Bluefield Range two months ago, but Lobster season was off, no trading US$10 for 17 langustas. So we did without... Damm

Anyway, have fun, hope everything is going well, sounds like you will be in Isla Mujeres in a week or so. Regards to the crowd at Marina Paraiso when you are there.

hola dick and everyone else luvi is going to look after the burnt out battery going to get a second hand one from somebody and install he says not to worry about a thing on whitecap we are leaving tomorrow on shang with pat dont know for sure the route we are taking all we know is that we are going to sea arriving in flordia around the first part of june will be in contact whenever we can talk to you then leroy and carolyn
leroy and carolyn
- Sunday, April 27, 2003 at 19:51:38 (EDT)

Hola LeRoy and Carolyn
Need some measurements of the battery box under the Q berth. need width, depth (10" I think) and the length.
Surette has a sectional battery that can be taken apart each 2V unit is 6 1/2 x 5 3/4 x 9 1/2, and they can be connected in a row of 6 units to make up 12V. This is equivalent to 3 batteries ordinary batteries in Amp Hours.
Anyway if you can get the measurements for me.
Here is a note from Vickie and Mike, they are in Colon Panama and going through the canal next week. "We have met several yachts who have crossed from the Pacific side, enroute to the Rio who have asked for info regarding safety in Guatemala. A Canadian boat from Vancouver (Tides End) with a delightful couple aboard will likely check out Luvis Marina for storage ... if there still is space available. This should continue in keeping the marina with a reputation of being the Canadian corner of the Rio".
Have you got a schedule for departure yet? Please do not forget to move the two sails from the stbd aft seat locker to the Vee berth, it will be dryer there.
Dick

- Saturday, April 26, 2003 at 22:42:43 (EDT)

LeRoy
When we are plugged into shore power, the inverter turns into a battery charger automatically, the "invert" part is only used when at anchor or offshore when we require 110V, otherwise it should be off.
I think it is the batteries, the start ones are 6 years old and the house bank I bought in Veracruz Mexico in Jan 2001, they were the best I could get at the time but not top quality stuff.
Anyway just leaving for Halifax now.
Another thing, please take down the Guatemala courtesy flag when you leave, no need to have it beat to hell all summer for nothing...
Dick

- Friday, April 25, 2003 at 05:51:12 (EDT)

Hi LeRoy and Carolyn
Please check to see if the"heart interface 2000" panel (the one just to the right of the 12V electric panel) has the small green LED "on" at the "inverter button". If it is, it should be off (unlit) when shore power is plugged in.
If there is no water coming in, fill up the starter bank, let them charge then un hook the + terminal from both batteries, that will disconnect that bank completely. For the "house bank" under the Q berth, disconnect the + wire on battery #1, and connect it to the + on battery #2. That will leave only one battery in the system, just make sure that Lube knows where the manual bilge switch is, because the automatic one will be disconnected.
After you leave get Lube to disconnect from shore power, and only connect every week or so for a day.
We figure these batteries are all finished, I am going to the Surette battery factory tomorrow, Thursday, in Springhill, and will have a chat with them about our problem.
Going to Halifax to pick up Cindy, arriving from a week in Vancouver, so I can stop on the way over; may also go to check on the spinnaker repair also.

Spring Thaw will be on the 19, 20 21 of June this year and Shediac-Summerside on the 14th.
Been busy getting Cajun Spirit ready for launch, harbour iscompletely clear of ice as of the 22nd Apr. Now it will warm up!!!

Get Pat to e-mail the mailing address for his daughter so I can send a CD of all the "mast in progress" pics I have.

Have fun, regards to everyone
Mary and Dick

hi dick it seems like the inverter is boiling the batteries dry lou says the inverter should not be hooked up while on shore power if so should i disconnect the inverter at the battery makes sense to me will check the guest book in a couple of days no date set yet on leaving with pat but will let you know when we are leaving all is well here with us will probably see you about the middle or late june say hi to all at yacht club leroy
leroy and carolyn
- Tuesday, April 22, 2003 at 11:08:33 (EDT)

Hi LeRoy and Carolyn
Well what to do with those batteries??? Well if something is setting off the alarm is that the Propane alarm? If it is I do not think it is the batteries unless they are making gas when they charge with low acid, like boiling or something. I will check around here for info. Anyway, please turn off the propane at the tank when you leave, that will solve the alarm thing if it is propane and I will deal with it when we go back in Nov.
As for the batteries... You can disconnect the + terminal, and that will solve that bank problem, except the emergency bilge pump runs off that bank, the wire is on top of the fuel tank at the terminal on the bulkhead there naxt to the fuel pump. Just fill the batteries and disconnect them.

The house bank, we can solve by moving the + red wire from the 1st battery, which is the one with the bad cell, and then hooking it up the + on the second house battery, leaving it to be the only one in the system. The SG on that one tested OK before we left, but Lube will have to check the bilge every now and then, in case we get a leak. I do not think buying new batteries and leaving them on charge all summer will solve the problem.

Only other thing I can think of is ... forget all of the above, disconnect from shore power when you leave and have Lube or Emi plug in for a day or so every week... what do you think?

All is well here, met with Jason at Saan, gave him the envelope, he was pretty happy. He looks well, and says he is doing good in school and likes his job.

How is Pat coming along with his getting ready to leave the river? Have you got a date for leaving?? Let us know the schedule.

The ice is all loose from shore now, and is just drifting around waiting for either a good tide or a strong east wind before it clears the harbour, sometimes it drifts back in with the tide, but I expect it will be clear in 2 more days or so.
The old car on the ice in the Yacht Club basin is still up, but I think she will go through the ice in about three days or so, then they will tow her out and someone will be $1000. richer. Docks are going in May 3rd if the basin ice is all gone or at least broken up.
Paul Sniveley has the Jr sailors this summer, another load off my back, and Donna Bowles is chair of Spring Thaw another load off, so I have the summer to myself. Have the J boat deck track off the port side and almost ready to put back on, all the holes are fixed so the never leak again. Will do the stbd side next week. Boats in is May 10, but we may wait for the second lift.

Hi everyone
Arrived home at 17:00 yesterday, everything seems to be fine here, except for the 5 ft snowbank in the patio yard... and the harbour is still frozen solid all the way to the lighthouse.
The ice at the bridge is pretty well broken up and is now just drift ice, there are snowbanks all over the place and they tell us they are only half as high as they were during the winter storms.
Temp here today going up to the big 10C, wow, after days of 30+C on the Rio Dulce!! Lots of warm clothes and Peter Mellish had the wood stove lit for us when we arrived. Everything fit into Cindy's car trunk so the ride was compfortable.
See Ya

Hi everyone
We are in Mexico City, arrived at 11:00 today, met another sailor from Change of Pace on the same flight from Guate this AM, she is headed to Los Angeles, and then to Vancouver. David is off to Atlanta, we will meet him again in Toronto later tonight. There is a direct flight from here to Toronto but they would not let us change flights... Ah well so we only get 6 hours sleep tonight.

LeRoy thought of something else, please turn off the propane tank when you leave for the summer, thanks. Will probbaly think of many more things we forgot, hope this is not the first sigh of Alhzimers...
Thanks Evan we have 7 bags but we will have to all pile into Cindys car. This is a spanish keyboard, cannot find the apostrophe key.

Shopped all day today in the under-ground market.
LeRoy and Carolyn, forgot to take out the two sails from the stbd aft locker, they should be put in the sun for awhile and then into the vee berth for the summer. Lube is going to sand the front seat locker and fix the leak problem, you may check on that also please.
Will send tomorrow from Mexico City, we have 4 hours there.

Hi everyone
only noon and we have a good start on the day already. We motored Whitecap over to a smapp river at 08:00 with Shang, and by 10:00 we had her new mast up and all fastened down with the rigging. Whitecap on one side and Jeff Phillips old stripped out Gulfstar on the other using our spinnaker haillards worked great.
Yesterday they had a big get together at Crowbar for Mary and I and Carolyn and LeRoy, so it was after dark when we got home. Everything packed and ready for the shuttle tomorrow at 10:00.
This afternoon we are having a b'bque on the deck, the French boat is heading for Cuba, and Robert and France (Rebelle) is leaving for Roatan, Nwe boats are coming in to take their places.

Hi Mom & Dad And David,
We made it home safe and sound. It's good to be back but miss you guys already. Suppose to be a big storm tomorrow here. I guess flights were cancelled all day today in Toronto because they were getting it all day. Hopefully that mess will be over by the time you guys are coming through there. But the weather here is really cold.Booked your room at the Sheraton in Toronto. Dave should be able to check in when he gets there while he is waiting for you guys. Be carefull cause of the Sars Disease, I guess Toronto airport is bad for it.
Can't wait to see you again. Safe traveling and see you when you get home. Thanks for the great time when we were there. Great memories!! Love

Hi everyone
Guess you can pick us up then Cindy, no need to go to Pete´s Fruitique, that is just going backwards, we can go directly home from the airport... OK? David arrives at 12:00 we get there 13:15 HFX time. Will post the flight nos later.
Things are winding down, sails still on, waiting for a full day of sun to make sure they are dry, this year they are going into the front cabin. Carolyn and LeRoy are moving onto Whitecap when we leave. We shuttle to Guate City on Monday AM and leave there on Wed AM
Found the leak... just crawled down the port aft hatch turned upside down and my nose was on the rudder stuffing box nut, it was pissing in. Got a monkey wrench from Adios, gave her a full turn and the damm leak was gone... after putting up with it for two years. And all this time we thought it was from our crash encounter with the reef at Nicholas Cay last year... Stupido eh!
Will e-mail tomorrow. Have to pick up the old Suzuki today and store it at Lubes shed. Will bring home the pistons and crank for new parts.

Hello Mom ,Dad & Dave,
Well you nissed it. The taxi came to plck us up in a 1988 Kia with a 1.3 litre cylinder engine (Dave would have gotten a great laugh) Well it started at the bridge.. a minature horse was in the middle of the bridge just sitting there!! Then at the bottom of the bridge was a traffic jam. Buses and trucks just parked where they wanted too. The first time I every seen a cop on duty there. After a while they got it cleaned up and traffic started. Then the traffic was three lanes. On both sides of us was cars going the opposite way. First time I have ever seen that. The markets were very busy as it was fresh vege day. I am surprised that we didn't clip off a few going through. Further down the road they were paving the road. They pave just like they build docks down there. About a foot an hour!! We were held up there for a while, then off we went again. The taxi found it hard going up the hills but we made it. We then encountered a rain ,wind lightening thunder storm!! Couldn't hardly see. All the other traffic was stopped on the side of the road but we kept going. The two hour was up and we were only half way there!! The rain stooped and we found out there were kids playing on the road the driver swerved to miss them and kept on going. Didn't seem to fizz him a bit. Then we met a bull rumming down the rtoad chasing a guy with a mechetee. It was funny to see but I pitty help the guy if he got caught. Further down the buckets of rain started again thre driver went from 120 down to 20 but couldn't see a thing. finally arrived at the airport 4 hours later. There was cows and horses all over the streets just rooming around. Quite the site's. The 2 hour taxi ride was a joy ride and a experiecne I'll never forget. The good thing about was I tightened some muscels from hanging on and probably lost a few pounds from the heat. No air conditioning and the windows were up cuase of all the rain!! Well thgen we caught our plane. I laughed for ten minutes. The plane was soo small. It fit all of ten people!! Quite the ride. Finally got to Belize City. Couldn't get a hold of Lisa so we caught a cab in to the Princess. WOW it is beautiful!! Nicer than the Loyalist and cheaper than where we stayed the first night with breakfast also included!!! Also has a marina!! I'll tell yuoo all about it after. Well we are safe and happy!!! Love

Hi everyone
Arrived safely back on the Rio late Tuesday afternoon, all is well. Stopped at the hot springs in the gorge for a while, Rick enjoyed it says it was too hot...
David is giving his parents the grand tour around the place, introducing them to everyone he knows... had lunch at Crowbar yesterday, and walked the bridge in the heat... 110F, going to be difficult when we get home.
Too bad about Clyde, ah well I think he was almost 15 years old, mom will miss him under her feet when she cooks... and he outlasted Bonnie by almost a year.
We are starting to think about things to bring home with us, and are setting things in one place to pack.
Sent many pics today

Hello Wedges/Morrisons, what a great website you have. Nicolle, are you wearing your sunscreen?? It sounds
like you are having a unbelievable experience. Dick, I am sitting in my office as I write this, looking out the window
at the S'Side Yacht Club. It's looking rather bleak and not quite ready for sailing. So, enjoy all that warm weather
and beauty while you can. Travel safely all. Miss you Nicolle. Lynn

Hi everyone
We are in Placentia again, left South Water Caye at 07:15 today and arrived here at 12:15 it was v hot last night, Nicolle had to sleep on deck... Today almost no wind when we wound our way between the reefs and coral heads. Depths changed from 100+ ft to 12 in only 2 minutes!!! so we had to watch for the light blue water, finally got to Pelican Cayes and had a clear 50+ ft all the way here. There are five other boats in the anchorage, two are Canadian out of Quebec, Moon Spinner carries a CDN flag and that other one who never has a CDN flag up ever. Dick does not even bother talking to him even when he needs something!!!
All is well, Yesterday we swam and snorkled all afternoon, today it looks like the same thing. Tonight will eat at a small cantina, where we bring our own wine, so we have a real French Chardonnay we picked up for US$6 in Belize City.
Tomorrow we will try to make Livingston, if not we will spend the night in New Haven lagoon or the Mangrove Cayes a few miles further on.
Will connect again at Livingston, if we have time or when we get back to Lube's dock.
Lots of Pics but cannot connect our laptop...

Hi everyone.
Man it is hot down here, we left Caye Caulker early yesterday AM, because no one could decide who or what we were going to have for breakfast!!! Instead sailed off for San Pedro and arrived at the anchorage at 10:30... to late for breakfast too early for dinner so we sailed down un charted water all the way to Cptn Morgan's Retreat for lunch. Anchored in 5 ft and went to the resort. They have big screen TV so we got our fix on news, had dinner and a swim. Dick forgot his credit card at Sandbox in Caye Caulker... have to go back tomorrow.
Wednesday, blowing like hell on the nose of course, we leave around 06:15 and have to power 3 hours. Guess what... the credit card was still there in the machine!!!
Yesterday, a yachter came over, "are you rreally from PEI?" "I am from Hunter River" name David Black, mother and father live in K'town, also related to wayne Hickox in S'Side. They sail a Choy Lee 38 sloop, out of Clearwater, Fl. They are on their way down to the Rio Dulce for the hurricane season. They are coming along behind us today so we can give them info and tips.
Think everyone is having a good time so far, tomorrow we will head east hopefully get to Bluefield Range for the night.
Once we leave here, there are no internet connects again until Placentia, so you will not hear from us for awhile.
Dick

Hola everyone
Happy St Patricks Day, We are in Caye Caulker, left Belize City at noon, arrived here around 4PM. Went to airport to pick up Nicolle and Rick, thinking their plane was at 6.25 pm but it came in at 4 PM, so they took a taxi and we crossed paths on the highway... Got them a room at the Chateau Carribean for the night, not bad, we had the use of the room all day to do laundry and shower ourselves. The Radisson dock is an open roadstead, Saturday night was noche horribilis, as the wind was coming on our stern and every wave slammed under the stern quarter with a lou shuttering wack!!! In the morning wwe turned the boat around and guess what.... the wind came from exactly 180 deg for the second night... no wonder they do not have any boats there.
Tomorrow we are going to San Pedro, Ambergris Cay anf from there will start heading east down the islands, maybe we may even make Turneffe and Glovers Reef this time.
All is well, our guests are already sunburned and this is the first day. Have lots of pics, but will have to send them when we get back to the Rio Dulce.
Tammy, please empty your overfull hotmail account, your messages from us get kicked baCK BECAUSE YOUR ACCOUNT IS FULL.

WE are in Placentia, arrived ar 16:00 today after doing out custom and Immigration things at Big Creek. Wave Dancer is still there in the mangroves, but they tell us that there is a big tug coming to take her away to the States, for repair.
Having battery problems, but today we tightened the belt and it seems to be working better, but batteries not holding charge for more than 5 hr. The shits...
We are in the anchorage with 10 other boats, one CDN from Vancouver, came over to say hello. We saw them on the Rio a few weeks ago.
Todays ride was not fun, upwind all the way into 6 ft+ seas, we could only make 2.5kts at best, tried sails but just took us towards shore so we opted to push through. Mary says it was like an all day roller coaster ride...
May stay here tomorrow, have to find Harry at the "Tree of Knowledge" we brought a qt of Gin for him.

Hi everyone
Need some more things please.,1 one of those CDN Tire battery post cleaner thingys, ours just fell apart today, the onr with the little sharp wires for cleaning the posts and the terminal ends. 2 Mom wants one of those orange juicers that you turn the fruit on to get juice, Imagine here we are in orange country and cannot find a juicer anywhere. 3 Suzuki part. We now need the centre seal for the crankshaft. There is a front seal then a bearing then a centre seal and bearing and then a rear seal and bearing. The centre seal is damaged and the base compression is going through it from one cylinder to the other. All the other inside parts are OK. but Oscar says to also get a spare impeller for her just in case we need one down the road...
We will borrow Yankee Girl's spare 4HP outboard for the trip to Belize, we are ready to leave just waiting on the info on the Suzuki.
One cell in battery A of the house bank did not take a charge and the test is in the red range, all the others are in the green. Even the old Surrette batteries for the engine starting are all testing in the green which is good.
Since it is already noon, we will leave tomorrow early for Livingston, so we should be able to Zarpe out and get to Punta Gorda Belize in one day for check in. Belize Customs, Immigration and port Captain are all in one building there, no walking all over the place to check in.
Will send again tomorrow maybe
Dick

- Saturday, March 08, 2003 at 13:42:42 (EST)

Hola everyone,
Gasket arrived Tuesday evening, delivered to the repair place yesterday and they have it ready today; Q275 (divide x 5 for CDN)+ I gave them a qt of rum and they were very happy.
Did the "equalize" thing on the batteries today but the power went off and it shut down, will try again tomorrow, Expect to leave here on Saturday for Livingston then Punta Gorda, Belize. Expect to get up as far as the Mangrove Cayes where we found the abandoned boat last year. By the way, they did eventually find the body floating in the mangroves, and as suspected, his zipper was open.
From there we will try for Placentia.
All is well, all equipment working finally...

Hola everyone, we are in the beautiful little town of Flores, located on a small island in a mountaintop lake in the Department of Peten. Yesterday we bussed to Tikal for the day, Carolyn was some excited about seeing the ruins, she climbed three of them with David. Mary and Dick stayed on the ground this time, Dick not feeling well, cramps. Arrived back at hotel, Kookie was back at hotel sick also, Lou was OK. We figure it was the pizza from the night before...
We stayed the first night on the way here at Finca Ixabel, a kind of eco hotel farm where everyone is on the honor system, you take a bottle of wine you mark it down. Owu accomadations were three tree houses, kind of neat. Will send pics when we get back to Whitecap later today or tomorrow.
All is well, hope our head gasket is there when we get back, so we can head up to Belize this week or early next week.
Dick, from Flores

Anyway...you look like you are enjoying yourself. Kyle did great on his exams....87 in math, 89 in science and 90 in english...still waiting on social studies. Not bad huh...all my nagging to study helped...lol. Zack is sick again...throat and ears...I think it's time to have those Tonsils out...but he does not think so. Oh, well...poor kid, he's feeling pretty rotten. Hockey season almost over. Kyle is playing pretty good...he sure loves the checking game...scares the heck out of me though.
Mom is doing great...she could not visit Grampie for a few days, alot of the residents had the flu...and they did not want mom to catch it so she did not go. Grampie did not catch it...thank heavens. All is cool here...literally...but spring is just around the corner, we hope.
Take care and don't forget...I'm still waiting on that e-mail.

Hi everyone, We are in Livingston, just returned from Peurto Barrios, picked up David's parcel, he is happy now that his glasses are fixed again. Someone up there does not know what Stainless steel is but there was two small packs of round head, thanks.
We will spend the night here at La Marina a mile up river from the town, and tomorrow head back to our dock. Got our passport visas stamped for another 90 days, also Mike and Vickie's and Carolyn and LeRoy´s. The UPS package is in Guate City, got word yesterday, so now we will get the gasket and the outboard will be fixed again mucho gracias. We have to phone them with further instructions. It appears no matter what address you put on it goes to the Guate City office and stays there!!! then they wait until you start a search for it...
Will e-mail Wednesday.

I checked on the parcels and one is on its way to where you had mentioned and the head gasket one is totally lost. They cannot even find where it left Summerside. They said to call again on Monday. I will keep you posted.

Summerside, P.E.I. Canada - Friday, February 21, 2003 at 17:08:43 (EST)

Hello Everyone,
I sent two parcels. One went with Dave's nose pads and some screws. It is in Guat. City waiting for instructions for payment on duty and taxes. The other one went UPS exactly like you said last Thursday with a promise it would reach you by Tuesday. It cost $79.50 to send it that way so you better get it. I will phone tomorrow to check on it. The only thing in that parcel is the gasket with a value on it of $9.00. I will keep after both Purolator and UPS until I receive word that you have both packages. So make sure you let us know. When I talked to both of them they had no problem getting them to the Chiqui's store and the other place you told me to send the first one but they needed to know that the payment was there before they would release them. I tried to pay them by MC but they wouldn't except the card number over the phone. I will confirm with you my trip plans as soon as they are finalized in the next couple of days. Love

S'side, P.E Canada - Thursday, February 20, 2003 at 22:34:15 (EST)

Hola Bill
I have a few questions, Are we waiting for one parcel or two? The one in Guate City I am trying to get them to forward down to Peurto Barrios which is only a 1 hr bus ride each way from here. Guate City is 5 hours each way... some new kind of "door to door" service that is!!!
If there are two parcels, David's glasses and the gasket, which way did the gasket get sent?? What is in the parcels?? besides the above things? And why would they be holding one for customs in Guate City? DHL have never contacted us here as of yet and their phone just says "all our operators are busy" wish I owned that place we get the same answer for 5 days now must be really busy!!!
Got to get that gasket soon, we are spinning wheels here now everything is done except the outboard, and it is hot down here over 100F today but at least we have a breeze. Windmill working fine putting out 4 to 6 amps in a light breeze, imagine we will get lots in a blow eh?
Please check C Nicolle on the shipping and let me know ASAP please, Otherwise all is well. Got track and traveller on Pat's mast yesterday, I think we are too fast for him he seems to want to slow down and never finish the thing...

The latest info on sending stuff down here, disregard other address!!!!
UPS either Overnight express or Next Day service to:
Tienda Reed, Att Dick Wedge
El Relleno, Rio Dulce,
Livingston, Izalal
Guatemala, Central America

If they ask a value give it $10.00 or less
UPS connects to Cargo Express in Guate City, and they come to Chiqui's store (Reed's Tienda) every day from Guate City.

Save this address, Yankee Girl recieved a parcel in 2 days from Miami this way.

Mucho thanks, Fed Ex will be fine, they connect with cargo express in Guate City, Richard has the address here, or perhaps tomorrow I will get Chiqui's store address even better.

Dick, GOOD NEWS!!!! I was at Dennis Motors today (Monday) and the gaskets (2) were in. I am going to get Nicolle to forward one to you via FED EX if that's what you want......you should send both of us the info on how to address it, soonest. We will only send one, in case it gets lost in transit. The other one we will keep here for you to take down next trip or send it if there's a problem with the first.
All is well at this end.
Cheers.
PS: The table is beautiful.

Dick, I talked with Gorden at Provincial Boat & Marine and he said that he uses a "Bibrin Resin" #701 (It's an Isophthalic Polyester Resin). Once the tank is set up you "flood" the interior with the same resin; there is no special sealer for it.

Hello, we are probably the only other Morgan 34 with a yawl rig! We sail mostly on the Great Lakes although we have ventured as far afield as Trinidad, taking the same route as you did to the Gulf. Enjoying your web site, if you ever bring the boat back to the Lakes we should meet. Regards Bob

Hi Everybody,
Glad to hear things are going good. It's wet and cold up here so enjoy your good weather. Marc's team had another victory in the Spud tournament last weekend. They really seem to have it all together!! Michelle's team got beat out in the crossovers. Dave don't worry about your car. We are looking for a motor and want to make sure it is a good one before we purchase it. So enjoy yourself and forget about the car for awhile. Miss you all!! Love,
