What an accomplishment.
I won't ask a lady her age, but roughly what decade of life is she?
Susanne is in her upper fifties IIRC, but with the strength and stamina of a much younger person, to say nothing of the determination to carry on regardless.
When she arrived in Hobart in 2018, after 250+ days at sea we greeted her with a big bag of stone fruits and other freshies. She sat in the cabin
with juice running down her chin and a huge smile on her face... and I asked her if we could help her with her job list. She looked a bit puzzled and said "I don't have one, except to make some new cones for the JSD"... and it was true! She was with us in Tassie for around another 6 weeks and didn't even take on fuel
. I think she did top up her water tanks
, though, 'cause we didn't have any useful rain.
Not your average cruiser!
