Oh she's a beast. But graceful and slippery too. I crewed on her for 6 months and 2000 miles from Mexico
to Costa Rica
, and we were in all kinds of weather
. Skippy's wife slept through 50 knot
squall off Nicaragua
. She woke up and said, "Oh, what a gorgeous sunrise." We both looked at each other and rolled our eyes; the lightning
bolts were so close that night!
Looking forward to getting her up the coast. Gotta pull the mast
, replace the rig, and a "few" other things, but looking forward to anchoring
off Little Coho and getting some quality waves and family
