I'm Ali, mom to 8 and 10 year olds, wife to "ohthetrees" on here. We bought a Hanse 505 (50ft) in November in New Caledonia
, which was making its way to Seattle
with crew in order for us to start a year long (maybe longer) sabbatical in July. Due to the very small but also very devastating virus, the boat
is now in Hawaii
, and we are all living on it (while working, homeschooling, doing our best to manage stress, working on the boat
. . .).
It needs a new rig and sails
, so we wait here until that happens. And then we go somewhere - the 'where' depending on government
responses to aforementioned virus. The original plan had been to cruise Vancouver
Island and then down the west coast
to the Sea of Cortez
. It was a nice plan while it lasted!
Hoping to make some connections here, especially since we can't exactly hang out in person.
We imported the, at the time Swiss registered, boat here in Honolulu, and I can share our (expensive) experience on that.
