Congratulations StarryHorizons, hope you are on your way doing well now..
SV Third Day, that is old home ground to me, Morro Bay... Years spent Cruising the Channel Islands down to Catalina
and further south... We would stop in Morro Bay on the way south from San Francisco
back to the Channel Islands. Old turf to me. How interesting.. Even a Force 50, very familiar type of boat there, hope yours is one of the few with fibreglass under the teak
decks and alluminum spars.. Last time I was there was on a DownEast 45 I re-rigged and re-powered and re-finished... Hmmm good ole days..
Monte, how about one of these two definitions as witty signatures for you:
Cruising: The most expensive way in the world to travel Third Class...
Cruising: Moving your continuing boat maintenance
to different places in the world where it is harder to get the parts
and supplies you need...
Helia 44, finally travelling first class now that I am matured, with 6 marine Air Conditioning
units, three kinds of refrigeration
, ice maker, big diesel
gen set, and all the possible normal nav and radar gear
doubled up above and below... heh he, first class but double the maintenance...
