Hi Tiffany and Potter Gang,

I heartily agree that the Potter owners group is one of the most attractive
features of the Potter boats.

However, I hope you won't take offense if I differ with you on one point. I
will continue to use the letters "DC" after my name. I am a sailor *and* a
doctor. I went back to school after age 40 to follow my heart and to become a
doctor. It was a lot of hard work,sacrifice, and I'm proud of my achievement.

I'm here to have fun in life and to help people. Using the letters after my
name is one way to let folks know that they can ask me for assistance if they
want to. Several of my best sailing buddies are also my patients, and I use
their business services as well. We take care of each other in many different
ways, on the ater and off.

Warm regards,
Judy B., DC
