So what changed your cruising plans if you dont mind me asking..your last entry 9-10 makes no mention of it and you seemed you were in Heaven.

My plans when I left Isis in Fiji was to work for 4 months to feed the cruising budget then return to continue cruising the S.Pacific and perhaps further. Isis and I have cruised the Bahamas, traveled across the US to Oregon, spent months together in the shop, traveled down the West coast (very rough), across to Hawaii (a piece of cake), then to the islands of the S. Pacific. All this time she has been a great and safe cruiser and I love her and had intended to return to her. Then fate stepped in and a boat I saw in Fiji ,but was over my budget, became available at a price I could afford. So, my cruising plans remain the same but with a new companion who, if as half as safe and stable as Isis I will be happy. Isis will take her new owner anywhere in the world.

It's funny, although i know that the Vega is a capable boat. Having grown up in sweden, I find myself stuck in the mental mindset where the Vega was considered more of a joke than a boat. (see Segelsalskapsresan)

I read about the three from northern Sweden who did a complete circumnavigation in one. I've read about countless atlantic crossings in Vegas, Every fact out there tells me i'm wrong. and i still can't stop thinking about it as anything but the AMC Pacer of the seas.

Best of luck to you on your future voyages. I hope you find a good buyer for her.

Hello csiunatc,
I am afraid you are wrong on this. Maybe you got that idea because the Vegas don't cost $100,000.
A boat that is inexpensive CAN BE GOOD! Every book I have read rates the Albin Vega as one of the top ten pocket cruisers.

I think the Vega is still the most enjoyable-to-sail, most easily sailed cruising boat I've ever helmed. It's structural integrity - the mast step issue aside - is excellent. Reading The Log of the Mahina is a pleasing, informative introduction to what the Vega is capable of - even in the hands of an inexperienced young sailor.
