Hi Malcom and Suzanne,
Our boat (Leopard 38/Moorings 3800) was with Moorings in Belize
for 5 and then Footloose for 2 (BVI). We completed our hand-over in April of this year in Tortola.
A couple of quick phase-out thoughts...
1) Tim Schaaf said it best on the Yahoo Leopard
group "One EARNS a good phase-out, and unfortunately, the necessary currency is measured in time and personal involvement
2) The phase-out keyword is "broken". Broken is unacceptable.
After all was said and done, we are VERY happy with our boat.
I hope all goes well for you. Say "Hi" to Rene from "Alexian"
