      Queen for a Day update:
      No more calls, we have a winner.
      A couple bringing their boat back to FL from the Rio Dulce, full-time cruisers and homeschoolers (well, boatschoolers) but for the desire of their daughter to do her junior and senior years in public schooling, are the winners in our giveaway.  They'll continue to live aboard, albeit probably in a marina.
      Fittingly, they'd done the same sort of thing with their car, giving it away to a couple in the marina whence they departed when they left on their cruise, several years ago, from Bradenton, so this sort of closes the circle.
      By the way, I've heard back from Wes Pratt, my original benefactor on the vehicle I did my first QFAD deal on 6 years ago, and he's both tickled that his vehicle was similarly passed along as well as thriving, and that I'm doing the same on this one.
      I can think of no more fulfilling thing to do than to provide a fellow full-time cruiser who's sold everything, and gave away THEIR car than to put a ride under them when they return to shore for a couple of years :{)) They've assured me my car will (later) meet a similar fate, so perhaps you'll see them post here in a few years!
      L8R, y'all
