There's Always Next Year

I was planning to head to the Caribbean for the winter, but there were just too many little things to finish up. I built the boat and was in a big hurry to put her in and go sailing, after 7 years of working on her it was time for a ride and the shakedown cruises were great! Had to pull it out for the winter but in the spring look out! I'll be cruising down the coast and then off to do a circumnavigation! I put togather a slideshow of the progress since I bought the hull



Stay warm!

Wow, what a great historical account of your build! Good for you! We're about to skip down the west coast to Mexico, but the circumnavigation thing is our dream, too.

Be SURE to keep a blog and let us all know of your progress when you leave.
