Re: It's ours, all ours!

Thanks for of the kind comments and good wishes.

Although osmosis issues were addressed by FP under warranty with peel, drying, epoxy, etc... survey reviled a few blisters on one of the sacrificial keels, and a handful above the waterline. More of a nuisance than a structural crisis, but it's something we'll need to keep on top of. Other than some rig tuning issues and a minor repair to the base of the mast, she's super clean.

We're doing a careful late season delivery to the Mississippi gulf coast where we will perform some upgrades / refit. By February 2016, we should be cruising full time, starting in the Caribbean for a season or two, followed by the world.

Curious, why Pass Christian? Is that home base? Where did you pick up your sweet FP?

Re: It's ours, all ours!

You are right, a good many of these did suffer from the dreaded pox but I believe those for sale now would have been sorted out many, many years ago.
The resale values also have stayed good suggesting that the issues were overcome.
