Tribute to Codi.

I got Codi in December of 1988 when she was 11 months old. We were in the final stages of building the boat and in May of 1988 we launched it. Codi took to the boat life immediately and spent much of the next 14 years at sea.  She had a grand life of adventure and lived to be 15 years and one day old. I cherished every bit of time with her. Before I continue on with more of my history I am going to post a few shots of me and her. Most of these shots were taken over the years by my good friend Dave Parkhurst. The last one of me and my old girl was taken by my friend Verena Gill.
