SUBJECT: Re: End of the Voyages... Dear Tina, You have been where so many dreamed of going, and have sent us messages and beautiful photos for each one of them. You have taken us with you on your journeys and I for one so appreciated it. I am sure this was also a lot of work for you both; as I can only imagine in far off places. I applaud your seamanship knowledge. I only learned in Annapolis the basic of boating with a sailboat years ago, but to handle a vessel the size of Ocean Pearl......you really have to know what you''re doing and 24/7. I am so thankful we have kept in touch.....and you did not think me odd with my Grey Pearl fascination. I saw you visited Annapolis and I miss it there but winters can be long and nasty and the older I get, the more the cold, damp weather bothers me. (Here it''s the heat and humidity.) Now you can enjoy other things in life along with your many friends and family. It''s still just Fancy and me and she is not well so I''m doing all I can for her. I looked at a photo of Chris Smith the dockmaster we both had as a friend and sure miss him. He''d call me when the Grey Pearl was coming in.....knowing how excited I''d be. Take it from a 76 year old; enjoy each day. I am so thankful you shared your travels with both the Grey Pearl and Ocean Pearl with myself and so many of your followers. You were so nice to do that and your writings so beautiful.... Please put a book together of your travels so maybe some day I can have it on my coffee table. I live in Jupiter Harbour, a mile north of Jupiter Yacht Club. I''m in a town home on the marina here, but slips not large enough for your vessel. An much older community. I''m on the HOA Board; the president, and one of my board members also lives in Barrington, RI on the water. I had to forward your information so he could read about the famous Nordhavn. Again, what ever new ventures you may participate in, enjoy them with gusto and be thankful for your many blessings. What stories the Ocean Peal can tell......and again so thankful I got to step inside the Grey Peal while she was "torn apart" being refurbished... just a few steps that meant so much to me.......I kept telling her to come home safe.....and tears are coming down now writing this as she did not listen......but not her fault. Take care and bless you and Braun and I am so thankful you took the time to email me. Hugs and bless you!

SUBJECT: RE: End of the Voyages Hi Braun and Tina, How great it is and how touched I am to see you are back on board of “Ocean Pearl”! Congratulations to Braun’s recovery! He looked great! Praise the Lord! It is sad to hear that you are selling her, but I am sure the great memories that you have in the 17 years of sea life on both the Ocean Pearls (N6208 and N6403) will be one of the sweetest one in your hearts. Life is entering into another stage, what is more thankful than being able live happily and say praise to our Lord everyday? Psalm 40 1 I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him. God bless you, Braun and Tina, He put a new song in your mouth! Praise the Lord! It’s so wonderful to know you, I will continue to remember you in my prayers, do send me some update of your new journey!

Braun and Tina, I think I know pretty much how you feel. After a divorce in 2005, a shipment of Que Linda on a yacht transport vessel from France to Fort Lauderdale, a delightful cruise with NAR shipmates Wayne and Bob and Bob''s wife from Lauderdale, down the Bahama chain to the northeast corner of Jamaica, where Linda joined us harbor-hopping across the north coast. From Montego Bay, where Linda departed, we went to Georgetown, Grand Caymen for a few nights, then down to my small resort in Roatan Honduras, arriving in early 2006. We all flew home from there in mid-January. On April 15 Bob, Wayne, and I delivered the boat from Roatan to Puget Sound in six weeks, arriving in the San Juan Islands Memorial Day weekend. Wayne and I did a little bit of cruising in the Canadian Gulf Islands that summer, and next summer of 2007 Wayne along with Bob and his wife did 3-4 months cruising from Seattle to Southeast Alaska and back. Earlier the following summer I sold her. All that is prologue to my latest adventure. I bought N4301 in September last year, planning to bring her to Seattle. After 4 months in the Bay Islands of Honduras I brought her back to Lauderdale and put her on the market. I had a wonderful time that winter but I learned that maintaining a 43'' boat at age 76 is much more difficult than maintaining a 58'' boat at age 65. On the market she is. Best wishes to you both wherever your next journey in life takes you. Best and warmest regards, Hal

SUBJECT: Re: End of the Voyages... B&T, thanks for the update guys.  We have an idea how difficult the decision was and it has nothing to do with a boat.  I imagine more than a few tears were shed typing these words.  I know I shed more than a few typing the final VofE.   So chin up, there is still a lot to see and do.  We know you will hit the ground running. It will be interesting to see how long it will take before you are sniffing salt again.  It took Mary and I a year and 3 weeks. I''ve included a few snaps from today.  I promise it wasn''t sea level and we still had a great time.  Actually, over 13,000'' at times.  The sheep shots were near home in Colorado, not New Zealand.  The 2 shepherds were Peruvian.  Snaps of my sweetie were my favorites.  You guys are the Real Deal.  It doesn''t get any better than that.

Hi Denise and Jim Fraser here, We have been looking at Nordhavn''s over the last few years, as well as a few other types of trawlers. We have been admiring Ocean Pearl for the past month as we drive by on our way in and out of Vineyard Haven. We live on MV year round. Any chance of a sneak peak before you put it on the market? We could come down anytime.
