@Waterway Guide,@Boatman 61, @Celestial Sailor thank you for the greetings. Yes we have a lot of space and a comfortable fit out but she's not too big to sail or manoeuvre in the Marina for two handed sailing with my wife.
@Deckofficer we had a few 170nm days up the East Coast
winds, I recall
a 176nm day across the Gulf of Carpanteria but I rarely push through the night, electing to double reef or run on head
sail only since I am normally short handed offshore
@CaptForce, yes I started from the standard Schionning Wilderness 1340X. The build location was opposite the Schionning design shop, now closed, so the plans were completed with an offshore
cruising brief. The standard boat construction material is ATL composites laser cut end grain balsa sheets
and west system epoxy
with honey comb paper core
furniture. Other major additions are Yanmar
power, Mase genset, Seldon rig, North sails
winches and deck gear
and still in the within the design weight budget!
I'll try to put up some interesting photos when I get to my PC.
