Frank -

I read about your trip/saw your pics on the Ariel site. What a great time y'all had!

Here's a link to Franks trip pics/narrative on the Ariel site. It starts with post #114. In that thread, prior to that post, you can see a lot of the work Frank did to get Revival set up for cruising... Very inspirational, and a good job!

Frank - I know Revival is still up for sale - feel free to post her info here in the SellFar area!

I've been trying to sell her for you, so that I can be like Craig/Faith, and have *2* Ariels in my marina... ;D
