Thanks for visiting. If you happen to see my boat along the waterways, give a call on Channel 16. I'm always listening.

Contributions to my Cruising Kitty
are always appreciated.

Every gift helps.

The Cruising Kitty is what boaters refer to as spending money. There's never enough aboard Seaweed!
