It’s been 2 years since my boat mishap in Buzzards Bay. Lots of changes, and and lots to look forward to. As with every year, I caught Jacob Kasper, my companion that day, on IM and we caught up on the events of the past year. He’s gotten married, and is his wife is expecting a child – big congratulations to them!
I’ve set a goal for myself of getting another (note that I do not say new) boat. I’ll be looking for a 21′ Starcraft Mariner, an aluminum boat with a high freeboard and deep splash well (which would have solved the problem 2 years ago…).
As always, big thanks to the Coast Guard, to Jacob for being the absolute best guy to be with in a tight situation, and for all the little things that turned out right when things had gone so very wrong.
I cherish every day and thank God I’m not still swimming…
