In Response To: Delightful stories by Mr. Forsyth. (KenJ IF folkboat 2595 Charleston SC)

Hi Ken,

Doesn't he realize he could have built 4 or 5 new boats over such a period of time? (grin)

I'd love to run into Mr. Forsyth someday, the guy has long been one of my cruising heroes...

Paul D met him in an anchorage up in Maine years ago, perhaps he'll share his impression...

He's The Real Deal, no doubt about it...

best regards,

Jon
