Thank you Attila for the comments on Palarran. To clarify on the crew size, in my experience, successful Med mooring
with side winds above 15 knots is best done with three on board. It's difficult to lay out the anchor
and then throw the mooring
line off the stern with only two on board. I've done it in mild conditions, but the chance of screwing it up in high winds is pretty high. That's why 3 is best in the Med and only two in the Caribbean.
Sailing did a lot of technical work
on the boat and to add a few more items. Two new offshore life rafts, thorough standing rigging
check with replacement of parts
found defective, partial change of all running rigging
, new offshore sails
, removing 9 through hulls, replacing all black water
hoses, new windlass
and 120 meters of chain, and more. I think it was a 4 page long invoice.
The hydraulic passerelle and dingy console really made life better in the Med.
If someone is interested in this offer, pm me and I can send you a list of what is onboard.
