Hi, I've joined this board having seen it pop up in all kinds of googling for various problems/projects I envisage undertaking aboard my boat. It seems to be a fun place with many a helping hand. Please be patient
My name is Joe, I'm a senior systems engineer
working on Nortel/cisco/microsoft equipment
. My boat is a 1974 Morgan Out Island
, 36 foot, centre cockpit
. We currently reside in New Zealand---and CONTARY to some Know-it-all armchair sailors, Sunchaser has made in to New Zealand
from St Martin
, via the BVI, ABC Islands, Panama
, French Polynesia
with very little drama. This boat only draws 4 foot when loaded, leaks
like a sieve, does not sail to windward and is 33 years old--go figure.
It does however now look like a refugee boat from Cuba
or West Africa--hence the MANY projects.
