    My 9 yr old Daughter and I just read this together. Very very inspiring. Well done, just needs a barhopper sticker!

    Congratulations, Captain Ed, for doing such a wonderful job raising a confident & self-assured and TALENTED daughter! And congratulations to Emma for a stunning job! It brings tears to my eyes seeing this story and the pix. I truly hope the magazine will print this - be sure to contact them and send them directly to this thread! What a fabulous story that could help and inspire so many young people who might be afraid to take on what seems like daunting projects. Kudos to you and your family. :dance

    :wink Thanks guys, I will try to contact FS about it.
    It will be a sad day when the last little mom and pop marina is gone to developers and only the rich will be able to enjoy the waters of Florida.

    Hey guys can someone help me out here. I live out in the woods and I have about the worst internet service around, I might as well be on dial up.
    Anyhow it took me three frigin days to write this post and get the pictures to load up.
    Now I'm trying to locate FSBlair or anyone involved in the FS magazine to see if they would be interested in putting this build in the magazine but I keep losing signal and getting dropped from the site.
    If anyone here could contact them I would really appreciate it.
    I just do not have the know how, Internet access or the patients to accomplish this.

    Great post. Nothing better than sharing your passions with you child and working together!

    What a pleasure to view and read! To me it's very reassuring that there are still parents who have dedicated their lives to their children. Please include this post on whatever college or school's application you may ever need...so many values learned and experienced by you both in this part of your lives together. Made my day!
    PS I needed that today!
