Sailing Sixteen Years on a 28' BCC

Just using the net to get to know/contact more long time sailors. I've been out now 20 years and I'm finally getting used to this forum/blog/site thing. Computers I understand. Still, I don't use them as much as I should. Navigation, etc. But the social part is uncharted. Check my blog for details/pics/etc of the miles I've sailed.

Is your Tuntsa related in any way to the one from Teppo Turen's book?

I'm the third owner of Tuntsa and had no contact with the prior owners. When I first sailed her, there was a copy of Turen's book (in a Reader's Digest condensed book collection) and that was my first exposure to the story. Great story though. My plan had been to change the name, but once I discovered the history of the name, I thought it was cool and kept it.
