Charter Dates: March 30- April 6, 2000
Charter Guests: Kenneth Singer
Georgianne and I recently returned from a week’s sailing with Vince
and Linda Stracener aboard the Drumbeat I, and I wanted to tell
you what a wonderful experience it was.
We were with the Rubenstein party, and there were as you know,
eight of us. The entire crew, Vince, Linda, and Kirk did everything
possible to make it a memorable experience, and they succeeded.
The Drumbeat was in superb condition, obviously well maintained
with justifiable pride.
The service could not have been better. The meals were superb,
and soon became one of the highlights of the trip. From that small
kitchen, Linda created some of the most outstanding meals we have
ever eaten. They had memorized the preference lists we had completed,
and essentially every item requested was accommodated. The activities
were varied, and well attended.
The only drawback to the trip is that our wives will, after this
experience, never again be willing to accompany us on a bareboat
In summary, the trip was simply outstanding, far exceeding our
lofty expectations. Unfortunately, we could not convince Linda to
relocate in Eugene and open a restaurant. We tried!
Congratulations and thank you very much for connecting us with
