If you haven’t noticed, I have not posted in a while. Seems like all the info ends up on FaceBook, Twitter and in personal emails, Skype and Facetime. But I still have this place to rant and ramble. So I’m back again. Jotting down my thoughts and enjoying life as a sailor.
I have a friend on the list to get a liver transplant. Brother Dan is his name and he is now living in Florida. I’m a very lucky guy to have him in my life. His caregiver and significant other continues to help keep him alive and pretty darn healthy for a guy in end stage liver disease.
He’s a singer / song writer and continues to perform, write and record. If that’s not enough, he’s a videographer too. So he’s taking on projects and enhancing peoples life through his art of video. You can check him out at: http://www.BrotherDanPalmer.com. You can also join his “Tribe” at http://HumanTribeProject.com and search for Brother Dan Palmer. Click on the link and then click “sign in”. At that point register to become a member. You will be able to interact and get to know a pretty amazing person.
Speaking of health issues… Most of us know someone that has HepC or maybe a friend of a friend. Well there is a cure now, but two companies are not playing together and the cure may not be supplied. You need to go to http://www.HepC-Cured.org. Read about it and if you are comfortable, sign the petition. Just follow your heart and at least share this information with your friends. 4 million Americans alone and millions Worldwide are suffering everyday and will die if this is allowed to continue.

On a brighter note, the World is a much better place with the Global Love Project. http://GlobalLoveProject.com. Founder Aine Belton has given the World a place where positive energy is number one. She has created eBooks for you and gives them away FREE. She has organized “Love In’s” Worldwide and continues to share posts and meditations. Get up there and get a dose of Love. It will make your inner Spirit shine.
There’s a new attraction at Salty Sam’s Marina here in Fort Myers Beach. It’s called Jet Boat Fun. Remember about 3 years back, I sold my sailing charter business to Capt. Dan? Well he has now added a new boat to his fleet. It’s a jet boat named Hot Tuna. http://www.JetBoatFun.com. If you are into going fast and spinning around in a boat on the back bay, getting your heart rate up and peeing your pants, this is the ride for you. Tell him I sent you over there and he’ll buy me a beer. Now that’s a good deal. Good luck Capt. Dan & Dianne. Oh by the way, remember my first mate Alex? He is the Captain of Hot Tuna. Sometimes he sails with me, but most of the time, he’s on call for Jet Boat Fun. We miss you Alex, but congratulations on becoming a captain.
As for sailing in Fort Myers Beach… We are alive and well. Panacea has new bottom paint, varnish, some new hoses, some clamps, some new wiring, cleaner connections and a rebuild thru hull as well as a new fuel filter and an old one taken out of the system and her sails have been re-sewed. She is sailing on the Gulf of Mexico with style. She’s looking good and feeling good and sailing GREAT.
She a project of Love. Piece by piece and thousands of dollars keep her together and ready for you and your family or guests. We are revamping the website soon with very special 2 and 3 day packages. Look for them up at http://www.FantaSeaSailing.com by mid to late December.
So that catches us up for now. The Christmas week is booking up fast, so if you are going to be here and want to get out on the most comfortable sailing vessel at the beach, just give me a call, 888-582-9046 and I’ll get you on the books. Call early to get the days you want.
Fort Myers Beach Sailing is alive. When you board you enjoy tropical music and as always, we have fresh fruit and mixed nuts available for snacking. We do have cool water too, but bring your own adult and soft drinks and any food you want. We have ice and refrigerator space too.
It’s Thanksgiving. I have a life that I’m thankful for. It’s a good life, filled with friends and family from all over the World. Thank you all for being a part of my family and friends. Here’s to a wonderful sailing season for us all…
See you on the Dock…
