Hello everyone, I have been looking at this forum for years and decided it was time to join. I have found a lot of good info on this forum.
is a 41' Formosa ketch
that I, and my better half, are rebuilding as we live aboard. It can be very challenging, but also very rewarding experience.
My goal is to completely refit
and bring our boat
standards,in 5 years when I retire. We are about 60% done now,but an unfortunate mishap happened.Our marina suffered a bad storm in which the breakwater wall ship gave away and hit our boat,breaking the bowsprit
off and a lot of other damage. The storm sank 7 other boats. We were lucky. The insurance
paid our boat off. I bought it back for salvage
. The insides are completed now. Just waiting for the weather
to break, to finnish the decks and masts. We have been able to do most of the work
ourselfs and therefor haved saved alot of money
. Thanks to a lot of good info in these forums
Other than that,we our just people getting ready to retire.
