Just got back from 3wks in the Bahamas, (unfortunately not on my M31), and just wanted to chime in.

As I stated when you put Murre up for sale Randall we will all miss you here on the forum.
You're right when you say we all owe Bill Kranidis a lot for keeping this forum going for us all.

I for one hope to follow you in your new venture,

Fair Winds my friend

.....and so it goes :-)

Congrats on selling "Murre", Randall.

Lucky sailor the one who will be her next owner.
I hope he/she has the will to do the things you did with her.
I do hope, every sailor who is lucky enough to get their hands on a Mariner, to be as skillful, vigilant and capable as you were with "Murre".

Thanks for the kind words to you and Mark, but is all for the love of Mariners that we are still here.
Great teacher this fine boat was for me. From playing around with the sails to get another 1/4 knot out of her in dead calms to throwing my sleeping bag on the cabin sole to get some rest while hove-to during a storm off Nantucket.
Those are the things that I'll take with me. Hell, I still have photos of "Carpe Diem" as my puter's background :-)

You can bet that I'll follow your next adventures.

If you're ever on this coast (for whatever reason), let me know. I'd love to have a few brewskis with you again :-)

Bill Kranidis
