As I said, Frau Ga nad I cruised to Hawaii and back. The boat sailed out from San Diego Harbor. It was one of the older boats in the fleet:
OK, that’s a joke. The San Diego Harbor has a boat museum which we toured. The boat above is the HMS Surprise. It was used in the movie Master and Commander in 2003.
The Star of India is a real beauty:

Never caught the last one, so thanks for posting it.
I don’t remember the last one either – love it! Thanks for all you do.
You make my day
How long did Sid live off of the 20 million (about 10 million or so after taxes)?
Did he blow it all at the track or in a bar??
Or did he move to Florida, like yoo noo hoo?
I don’t know. He blew town and I never saw him again.
