    Come to my party this Saturday if you are anywhere nearby.

    I'm a volunteer with the Los Angeles Maritime Institute, and we've spent the last 2 years building 2 brigantines that we'll be launching.

    The party starts at 9AM. Admission is free. Music, fireworks, watch the boats go into the water and see if they float.

    The speeches are guaranteed to be short.

    These will be designated "The Official Tall Ships of the City of Los Angeles."

    I have been watching the progress for some time MsDonna. Although I will not be able to attend the ceremonies, I wish you the best. Looks like a lot of hard work went into this project.

    I live on the other side of the hill in Palos Verdes.

    Obstinatedon -

    If you're going to be in the area (I figure you must pass by if you have been watching) let me know and I can probably arrange a tour of the boats for you. The old ones if not the new ones. We still don't have the official word about where the new ones will be kept.

    I live on the opposite side of the hill from you.
