51. She's been unattended for last year or more, so cosmetics are poor. Last year she was hauled out and sticks were pulled. Thru-hulls were replaced, alum masts were repaired and new tangs installed. All new standing rigging
. New bowsprit
and roller furling
. New fuel tanks
. New liferaft
and wind steering gear
. Boat also equipped with EPIRB
and satellite phone
Depending on prep time, route
may be via Majuro, Pohnpei, and Satawal. Stops dropped with later departure.
I posted to this forum last winter and had some good responses. Unfortunately couldn't get the boat work
done (ran out of time and boat bucks) in time to make the passage
. Had to get back to work
. I'm going to attempt it again the end of March or first of April... Wish me luck. It is no fun being 3200nm from your boat!
