Good Day Everyone,
My name is Curtis Ciszek. I am the one who made and posted this video to youtube. I am glad that the majority of viewers have enjoyed it. In answer to some FAQs; the boat is a Ted Brewer Designed Pacific 43. I believe it is the only one built in fiberglass
as a one off from a plug
The hard bimini
(light frp)with its solar panels
and side curtains has been a God-send and a highly recommended feature for just about any vessel. The talk around the beach fire, among aging cruisers these days is skin cancer and those who have not had some form of it, seem to be the exception. It is a pain to see the mainsail
with this bimini but I am happy to trade
the inconveniences of it for the cool, dry cockpit
I brought on my sister Ginna Ciszek, another circumnavigator and my nephew an aspiring long-distance sailor for the voyage from Hawaii
to the Columbia
River. Two out of three weeks of this last voyage in early May were sailed in dense fog
with a tremendous amount of tsunami debris, including a 25' upturned panga.
I didn't document that last voyage as much as I wish I had in hindsight.
My intentions are to set sail for Alaska
and the Queen Charlotte Islands in a few weeks and then back to Hawaii
for the winter. I will make a point of sharing these voyages in video.
If anyone has the least questions, I would be happy to answer them.
Curtis Ciszek aka Seasick
