Listened to Episode #4. It was great to hear your responses and even to figure out that the term I was looking for was “ballast” instead of “bilge”.

I enjoy the actual information provided by the site and will visit from time to time.

My favorite body of water, right now, is the Monterey Bay off of the California coast which we visit yearly.

Again, thank you.
