Nice... and well illustrated.

Hi to all fellow Searunner Owners, or wannabe owners,

This is the first Forum I've ever joined... Don't really know how to make my first post !

Built a 37 in UK back yard between 1978 and '82, TRIXOLAR. Sailed in UK for 4 years, then retired and hit the high seas in '86. Aim was to see if we could reach Gibraltar, and see if we liked full time cruising. Made that in a few months and headed on down to look at W Africa and then on across and down to Brazil, fabulous place, right down to Sao Paulo. Spent 10 months before being kicked out, and headed up to Trinidad and Caribbean. Up and down all those great islands until '90, then up in to FL. USA for a year, and back via Bahamas to Trinidad.

What a great life, but in '95 my wife Julie yearned to be back home as a real grandmother, with no more hairwashing in a bucket. In May '96 I sold Trixolar and went home to be landbased again. She was killed in a pedal-bike road accident Jan '97. Wow! Forty years married ! Life could have ended for me.

But I went out and bought another Searunner, a 40 in Florida, called it MAXOLAR and set off again. I was very lucky in that a longstanding friend Audrey agreed to try the cruising life with me, and the last 10 years have been 6 months in UK and the Winters back cruising in warmer places. A complete circuit of the Caribbean East and West, all north coast of S America and back to FL.

That's the history, and now at 72 years young, an ex-shop teacher, there is not much I don't know about Searunners. I owe my last 30 years of pleasure to Jim Brown. ANY QUESTIONS ?

Dave M

Hi DaveM,

I just googled Maxolar, and I see you have the boat for sale. Is this still the case? I also noticed that Maxolar is British registered, according to the sign on the stern. Is this still the case?

I am in the UK, and am interested in buying a Searunner, just not quite yet.

Hi John,

Yes Maxolar has been for sale since January 08, but though I have had email enquiries, NO-ONE has actually been to look at it.

Look on http://groups.msn.com/moscan for lots of pics and all details.

I too am in UK (typical bank holiday weathher), till about Oct 6th when I will fly out to Florida and Maxolar. We intend to cruise the Winter 6 months in Cuba with maybe a trip to Jamaica.

It is Brit registered but only SSR.

My Phone 01256 70 44 93.

Happy hunting,
DaveM
