The boat is Southern Cross and she met every expectation I had. The rig was excellent, modifications were appropriate. She and I sailed in some very serious circumstances and she never failed to deliver. Hardest voyage I have made aboard any boat and this little ship made it happen. I am glad I was thoughtful and careful in putting her together, a proper yacht in my thinking.

Howard,

Congratulations on your adventure and also so glad you made back to all of us. Your SCamp is gorgeous and I'm glad she made it back too.

See you PT in August!

wish I could make it to PT. I am on the wrong coast. He needs to make a circuit and hit up St. Michaels in Maryland in October too!

Looking forward to more adventures. Fellow Scamper Pete
