Ahoi from New Zealand !

Hi everybody, just joined this forum.
I converted an aluminium 40' Dough Peterson 2-ton IOR racer to a cruiser and sailed her with my partner from Germany to New Zealand / Australia and two more trips to the South Pacific from here. Just sold her after 17 years ownership and now we are boat hunting for a cruiser in the 45' to 50' range to do the missing half of the circumnavigation with our children (6 and 8).
See ya
Arne

Welcome sounds like quite a trip. Good luck with the famil version of the circle.

Welcome to the forum Arne.

I'm sure a lot of folks here would be interested to know how you converted that racing boat into a cruiser and your advice to others who are considering the same.
It comes up often here.
I think a "Convert Racing Boat to Cruiser" thread would be very interesting!
Welcome.
