Has anyone heard from Helen (Ka8uet). I know CF offered some assistance when she got aboard her new Cat and was looking for a power winch.

I never heard from her, but I was at the Green Cove Springs marina where my Son-in-law was having his boat surveyed and I saw what I thought was the catamaran that she was buying. 'hope see is having some success and doing well.
Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Finally got a response this morning by e-mail. She never got the power winch she was looking for but did get the A/C going and was comfortable in Green Cove. She started up the ICW and got as far as Amelia Island before hurricane Irma caught up to her, so she's parked there now and is renting a car to head home for a while, then return for another try. She has vast quantities of beer aboard, so one can understand why she would want to keep it quiet until she escapes the Fernandina area.

Her boat is at Amelia Island Marina, about 5 miles from mine. She had some 'interesting' things happen to her on he way from Green Cove Springs to Fernandina..... But she's back in Ohio the last 2 months or so, hopes to be back onboard next week....

Yeah, you know, ever since she got her sail cat, she’s been incommunicado. I think she may have moved on from practical boat ownership and embraced the flagrant opulence of luxury catamaran living! I’ve been in that model boat! To put it in perspective, one could store a week’s supply of Capn. Charlie’s beer in the shower alone. She may not want to rub elbows with us anymore. :|
