    Matt it’s so great to be able to read about your journey. I can’t wait to see you.try not to forget about me.

  6. Hans Bernwall says:

    Hi Mark! We talked about your NW passage plans in Annapolis 2010 and a year later you had done it. Congratulations – a hell of an accomplishment. Smallest boat worth very little but with a very determind skipper. I assume that you try to do this non stop but if you need any parts for your Monitor we will try to help you out. Keep going and conquer the Horn. I think that you are sailing into the record books if you are not there already. GO FOR IT! Hans

    KEEP ME POSTED. ADD A “NAMED” PLACE LOCATION
    TO LAT./LONG NOTE SO PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE A MAP/CHART OR
    CAN’T DO THE CALCULATION KNOW APPROXIMATELY WHERE
    MATT IS THAT DAY. E.G. “OFF COAST OF CHILE AND EXPECTS
    ROUND THE HORN ABOUT……..”

  8. ScottandBetsy Rutherford says:

    Merry Christmas Matt. You have a standing invitation to joins us in CA next year for Christmas. Keep a look out for that North star. Smooth sailing

  9. Neil Doran says:

    Stay safe – especially around Hatteras. Watch out for those ships! Will be there to greet ya when you return to Annapolis – mid April?
