The individual who makes Cape Horn windvanes, a French Canadian by the name of Eves has sailed around thw world on and spent many yeears living aboard
. He came and introduced himself to me a number of years back when he was stuck with a repair
at my marina in NY and have the feeling he is a very giving and easy person to speak with. He even has a movie
that was made of his sailing adventures in this boat
"If you are serious" I don't think he would mind being contacted via email
to see if he would be willing to discuss what he knows about these lovely boats.
