Our Boat

After a year of searching my wife found a 1977 Islander Freeport 41. It is indeed a fine choice. Plenty of living space and more storage space then any other boats we have seen. This boat was designed with the woman in mind. I will try to add some pictures.

We currently sail an Aloha 34 on beautiful Georgian bay. Its our third sailboat, the first was a Tanzer 22 and then we went to a Tanzer 8.5. We love the way the Aloha sails, compaired to the other two, and the extra room and storage is great.

In a mere five months we will take posession of our new Beneteau 393. This is probably our last boat which will be sailed out of Noank, CT until retirement in a few years and then ............. whatever.

I have an S2 6.7 (22ft). It is a great boat for sail tahoe or the SF bay. Fast, agile, comfortable but I will sell her one day so I can cruise the world. Not sure what I will buy that. With my luck something all wrong that I wont be happy with but I would rather be out sailing on a boat I am not happy with than sitting in this damn office. sssigh

Hi everyone,

"it is hard to be boatless"

Yep, I failed in my religion temporaly.

But hope is on its way. Construction on my retirement boat starts in 3 weeks time. Steel construction, 12.8m LOA, named "Touch Wood".

"Touch Wood" will carry me and my old lady to the Pacific via Panama canal on an extended cruise of 5 - 7 years.

Can't wait .........

Talking Brewer 12.8

We are 3 months into a 15 month refit of our Brewer 12.8. The deeper I dig into her, the more I'm impressed with how well the Brewer is built.

Will retire in Spring of '06.
