SeaCall calling

Hi all from downunder New Zealand. Just found this forum and hope to contribute from here. A mate of mine just purchased a Wharram Tiki 38, professionally built in NZ in 2000.
We sailed her down from Auckland to our home base in Mana Wellington early November. A passage of some 1000 nmls taking 10 days via North Cape down the West coast. The wind deserted us so it was motoring for about 75% down the coast. That said, we were very pleased with 'SeaCall's performance. 11.5kts being recorded on Navionics.
We will be using her as a non-denominational, not for profit vessel to aid those in our community and into the Pacific Islands probably next year. We shall slip her late February to undergo a tidy up and reconfigure to suit our needs. Which leads me to a question for opinions. We currently have a 4 burner hob and oven in the galley. Do you think the oven is an asset onboard? I spent 6 months cruising in the Pacic 40 years ago and do not recall using one on the 52 footer that I was crowing on. Any comments?
Thanks, John Meadows.

Re: SeaCall calling

I absolutely love having an oven and wouldn't be without it. Baking bread, cakes, cookies, roasting veggies, roasts, baked potatoes, etc.

My Force 10 also has a broiler which is great for the occasional steak.

If you cook well and eat well you will enjoy cruising much more.
