Re: Meet my new Vagabond 47, Raven

That's a seriously nice boat!

Re: Meet my new Vagabond 47, Raven

Chris. I saw "RAVEN" a few months ago and had created a folder with all the info and pics of her. I just now saw here on this forum that you got it. What a surprise. Will have to update the name of the folder and add the word "SOLD". Congrats. She's a nice looking boat.

Re: Meet my new Vagabond 47, Raven

The bike actually spends most of its time in the trunck of my car because I do a drive/ride commute. My girlfriend relies on a her bike as her sole form of transportation so she has invested in a cover.

We have learned (the hard way) that the saltwater will quickly destroy a bicycle so they go down below when sailing.

Re: Meet my new Vagabond 47, Raven

Great boat! I think what "JTSail" said about doing the work your self is spot on. No better way to get to know your boat and systems than doing it yourself. I am in the same process as you down here in Florida. Craig
