The Kuva is a 56' Sampson built ferro-cement sailboat now dry-docked in Seward, Alaska
She is now cutter
rigged, but at one time was a ketch
rig before reportedly doing a 360 in a typhoon off the coast of Hawaii
sometime in the '80's.
I am currently fitting her out for what I hope to be a global circumnavigation
in 5 years or so from now with my wife. I grew up as a day sailor in various parts
of the world, mostly in Alaska
and have no experience crossing the ocean yet.
I am on this forum in the hopes that many questions I have about Kuva and this refit
will be answered, and that I will be able to answer some questions for others in matters of sailing I may have more experience in: Like what is it like sailing in AK? or Why is the rum
always gone? The answer to the latter some may find amusing. I do like rum
, especially yours...lol
Looking forward to meeting people here!
