    Hey, Mike
    I am new to the cruisers forum, I tend to read but never post. But I seen in a post that you owned a Grampian 34 Ketch for 10 years before you sold her. My husband and I are looking for a bigger boat and we came across this Grampian. It seems to be hitting all of our points, I am just wondering if the boat sails well (been told they should), but it's the number 1 thing we are both looking for. We much rather sail over using the motor. We don't know anyone who has ever owned one though, or sailed its hard to find out. The owners of the boat were not much into the sailing either, so they are unable to tell us how the boats points in the wind. If by chance you could fill me in, on what you think their sailing performance is like and how they point to wind that would be great!

    Thanks Amy

    Yes we wintered two winters there but this year are at Mimico Cruising Club there are 9 of us. We are closer to downtown, as well my wife works downtown. Is it you are coming here this summer or spring if so will look forward to meeting you. If there is anything I can do to help you find any more info just ask away.

    Yea Mike: You will have to tell me about your trip. I was trying to get hold of you to see if you would be able to help me get the boat down to Washburn, Wisc. to get it lifted out of the water, but we got it down there last week and all is well. We will be sailing Lake superior next summer, so maybe we will be able to hook up then or maybe you could even join us. Dan
