My wife and myself, Richard and Maridell Weaver, have owned Seawind II, "Ixchel" since 1978 and have put over 30,000 miles under the keel. No doubt you will find some our our correspondence among the issues of "SeaWords". I have not had a chance to peruse the website in detail, but it seems rather complete. It makes me wonder if maybe you have too much free time. Ha Ha!

We live in South Pasadena, Florida, a suburb of St. Petersburg. We have cruised all the way from Roaton, Hunduras to Roque Island, Maine including 25 miles up the Suwanee River. We plan a two-month cruise in the Bahamas this spring, mostly in the Exumas.

My wife is the webmaster of the St. Petersburg Yacht Club webpage. You can view it at "". I have written a scoring program for one-design regattas. It can be downloaded at "".

You have done a wonderful service. Thanks.

Dick Weaver
