River from mouth to Idaho, all over MX and the length of Central America
. Currently we are at our little farm in Oregon
, and boat is in Marina Riviera on Banderas Bay. Will return there in November and will take comprehensive photos.
The only survey since 1992 has been annuals of rigging, the most recent in March 2022, which required replacing the triadic stay and main backstay. Triadic already replaced and backstay is supposed to have been replaced by North Sails of PV by now, but I have not heard that it has been completed. Will be done by them if not already. One of the mizzen mast
chain plates needs further examination which will be done when we return to boat, but could be done at anytime if you are interested. Otherwise all standing and running rigging passed inspection
Sails: 120 Genoa
, new 2015, and always stowed below when not in use, no signs of wear;
; new appx 2013, excellent condition except some chafe at head
; has not been out of bag for several years, as I recall
, it was somewhat dirty, but no appreciable wear. I think it dates back to the 1990s, but little used.
: Old, used once many years ago, not sure of condition.
Main: New 2012, Stored below when boat left, except for right now, it is on boom. Excellent condition.
Storm main; same condition and use as storm jib
, but used twice.
Mizzen: new 2014; lightly used, as boat sails well without it. Excellent condition.
with "0 code" roller furling
, furls from helm
. All halyards and sheets
, topping lifts and first reef in main can be done from helm
seat. Easy single
Entire boat, in, out and under needs repaint. Pettit Trinidad for bottom is on boat for when next hauled.
One thruhull, and transmission seals
need replacing. I have parts
and will be taking them to boat to install when returning in November. 4 anchors; all chain rode
, and excellent power windlass
. Very reliable Perkins
4-108. 50hp. Unused line, and other spares aboard. Extra tankage. Cruised full time from 2005 to 2013, then 6/6 until now except during covid in 2020. Lived aboard 1992 to 2005.
Any other Qs, just ask.
