Hello to all, I recently joined the forum and have really been impressed. I have been sailing for the last 45 years off and on. In 2000 I sailed a CT54 from tortola, BVI to Kemah, TX. The BVI is a sailors paradise with deep water and lots of wind. The CT54 was more boat than the first mate and I needed and which required additional crew(Plus not a Gaveston Bay boat). I am now outfitting a swedish built 36' sloop and the target date for being cruise ready is December this year.
