G'Day Steve,
Well done - can't give advice on that trip but sure you'll get some from others.

Hey Steve,
Jeff here. Living in Shanghai, but made in Canada.
How did that trip go on the cat? Great to hear you got a new cat. Have you posted any pics? I spent some time in Sydney harbor on the Adam's 10's. Seems like a lifetime ago now.
Regards.

Re: New to Posting

My first post, hope I'm doing it right. I am residing in St Thomas, in middle of Medical assignment. Have some experience, and great passion for some sailing down islands. I saw Edel 33' catamaran for sale here. Is that an appropriate size boat for me, wife, and small dog for 3-4 months of cruising?

@ DaventrishWelcome to CF!

Can't imagine why it wouldn't suffice, but you might want to get the ok from your wife.

My first time at this
