Since my last post I sailed scintilla my westphal 46 around the Bahamas
. ( where we've left her at a friends house until we can get back in a month )
She sailed amazingly and was chuffed to bits .
David westphal did design and build the boats as far as I know and we are in touch with each other .
I sent them a text to say thanks for making scintilla all those years ago and that myself and girlfriend love her . We got a lovely reply from Mrs westphal and Mrs w and David have invited me for a drink at their home in the keys. Maybe with the kind permission of them I'm hoping to maybe do a recorded interview , for prosperity as we hope to own our boat for a long time .
We set sail back end of this year around the world after a quick sail back to Miami
for a little bit of maintainence and fill up with cheap fuel
I'm not sure how to post photos .
But if anyone would like direct contact then I'm on firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks
