With a little help you can still do some things you thought would be impossible. I never thought I'd be able to go boating again let alone go sailing. With an offer from friend Suzanne from ALS Ont. and her husband Bob to go sailing on their 31 ft boat and a promise that they could get my wheelchair bound body on and off the boat we went to Barrie Sat. With the help of my Hoyer lift sling some extra rope and a crane they use to do work on sail masts and Jim the helpful marina guy we did it. Lee and I had a great time. Propped up against the cabin and a few pillows I was able to sit and enjoy lunch and beverages and a day of sailing. I didn't think it was possible. I guess you have to think outside the box. Suzanne wanted to take me sailing so she figured out a way. If you want to look at some pictures of the day click on my user name AL and click on the album. If you click the pic it will enlarge.
