Upgraded to Abbott 36

Hello Sailors,

I have almost 20 years of prairie sailing. In 2017 I upgraded from White Magic, C&C 29 MKII to Airtime an Abbott 36 modified and equipped for Cruising. For now I am sailing Lake Winnipeg single handed and may move the boat to the Great Lakes or the Pacific for longer passages.

Last summer I crewed on the return of a VIC Maui race boats. That was my first blue water passage. Memorable. Currently, I am studying for the Royal Yachtmaster certification.

Hope to crew in the near future.

Re: Upgraded to Abbott 36

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Leor.

Was yours the original "White Magic", C&C prototype?

Re: Upgraded to Abbott 36

Gord, yes I owned the original White Magic prototype that appears on the 1983 brochure. Now the boat is at Gull Harbour, Hecla Island, Manitoba.
BTW do you know how to install bsb4 raster charts on open con?

Re: Upgraded to Abbott 36

Sorry, I don’t know anything about OpenCPN.
Our C&C 29, “Southbound”, was the display boat, at the 1984 Toronto boat show.
