Ahoy Mates, I've been on my GB42 for 17 years now and just retired with plans to cruise
. I have many friends who are in Mexico
and on South to Panama
. Hopefully one day i will do the hardest chore ever and drop the dock
lines for the last time here at Cal
I hope to gain lots of knowledge from you experienced cruisers and to share with you my experiences of working on and protecting a wood boat. This boat is covered in epoxy
with multiple coats and I am in the process of finishing it with Sterling LP.
I am also looking to hear from you about anchors, and I know that is a subject like religeon and politics, but I will soon be making a new anchor
pulpit to accomodate two anchors and plan on installing a dual capstan windless.
This boat came from Boston, Mass on it's own bottom and has the same Danforth that the original owner put on it. I really like Danforth and have been in Santa Ana blows of 60+ Kt winds so be kind when you knock the Danforth.
Enough said, let the party begin!
