One of the beautiful things about sailing are the people you "meet", or in the case of the electronic world the virtual connections you make. Through the wonders of the internet and Facebook I connected with Skipper Jarrett, who captains a Redwing 30, serial number 137 (Exploits is #136). I've never met Jarrett and never talked to him on the phone. Yet oddly enough, I consider him and his advice and encouragement to be a very important part of my sail boat life.
I am guessing that Jarrett's boat is maintained in mint condition. I also know thing or two about Redwings. I'm thinking then, that this is a fine boat that will provide someone with years of enjoyment, just like Exploits has provided to us. And who knows, if they have a Facebook account, maybe I'll make a new friend!
Good luck selling the boat Skipper and thanks for all the advice!
