| I met Mike during the '09 Texas200
and upon return to Oregon, struck up an internet friendship with him
and his wife, Jackie. Mike was desirous of entering the Everglades
Challenge and asked if I'd come along as crew (I am certain Jackie
wouldn't let him do it alone.)
Mike built a Laguna sailboat for this event. Laguna Dos: Blue Laguna is only the second Laguna class boat to hit the water.
