Long Beach

The QUEST has now arrived at Long Beach and is docked at the Shoreline Marina, thanks to arrangements made by Pam and Vince Markese. Charlene Hoffstadt and I met with Vince and Pam at the marina and watched Dan bring the Quest in. Nice show! Thanks captains Greg and Todd for seeing her safely from Astoria to Long Beach and hope your flight home was uneventful.
Richard Hoffstadt joined us after his meeting and the tours began. By the time Jan, Dan's sister, arrived with Jackie (Mom) and Ed (Dad) and friends Debbie and Richard we were ready to party Querrey style. It was great to visit with family and friends in our new home. Thanks Jackie and Ed for dinner and drinks!
Dan already has the leaking helm steering unit apart and the rebuild kit ordered to repair it. That should be here tomorrow and Dan will get it rebuilt and ready to go. We plan to be here all week, leaving Monday, 2/08/10.
Thank you Richard and Charlene for your hospitality while I waited for Dan to arrive. I enjoyed my stay and visiting with Kelly, Tracy and the "grand boys". I was also grateful to see my friend, Elaine, from high school. We had a lovely morning visiting over coffee. We are blessed with good friends and family.


  1. We had a really wonderful day. For any of you who will not get to see QUEST in person, it is really awesome. Truly a home away from home. I'm just trying to figure out how to stow away so I can go with them!

  2. Glad to hear that all is well aboard the mighty M/Y Quest!

  3. Charlene It was great to have Judy stay with Richard and I while waiting for the Quest to arrive. It was wonderdul to see Ed, Jackie and Jan again and to meet Conrad, Debbie and RIchard. The Querry's will have a grand adventure on the Quest.

  4. haha Jan! I told my mom to watchout for stow aways! :-) I hope to get to see the Quest myself sometime in the near future!

  5. The Coleman's are looking forward to seeing the Quest later this week and welcoming its arrival to our home harbor in Dana Point, California next Monday.
