Nice. What was the deal with all that water inside the boat? You didn't seem too concerned about that.

Re: Are there any Derek Kelsall's about?

Thanks so much for sharing your video with us.

Are you in Aus now and do you have a blog or website of your travels?

Where is the name Carib from?

Interesting footage from the bedroom, makes it look very fast indeed!

Re: Are there any Derek Kelsall's about?

Glad you enjoyed it. We are in Tahiti at the moment. No blog or website, just a closed group on facebook by invitation only. Carib is our son who was conceived during a cruise through the Caribbean (hence the name) about 11 years ago. Sometimes we say he was named after the beer. Or the chocolate. Or those fierce Carib indians.

The seal around the steering compartment hatch would leak a little water when running downwind in decent waves. Required pumping every 3 or 4 days. Not serious and no concern.

Mark (Colemj), we spent Jan to May 2012 around the San Blas, Portobelo and Shelter Bay, so I am surprised we didn't bump into you somewhere along the way. Your blog photos of the San Blas bring back many great memories.

have a Kelsall 39' cat here. Incredibly roomy and comfortable to live on although still working the bugs out of her sail set up and power drive

There's definitely one Derek Kelsall about, and sometimes he posts on this forum.

You can reach Derek via his email. He is great about answering them. We recently found an ad for our boat from two owners previous to us and it's been incredibly helpful in aiding us to bring her back to more of the original state. Good stuff
