    things are great! I did find a ride. A dutch guy - Hein. His 62" alu monohull was in a boat yard in portugal where I joined. after 10 days preparing we were launched and went to the Canaries. we were 3 people on board at first, but were joined by one more on Grand Canaria. after a small cruise there we did the crossing in one stretch. we had to go all the way to 14°N before we found some real winds so the total crossing took 20 days. But we had calm seas all the way and when the wind picked up we sailed around 6-9 knots the last 10 days. We arrived in Martinique on jan 6th and I was there for just a week before it was time to go home and back to school. So thats where I am right now. But the ride was awesome. I caught a meter long yellowfin tuna, we saw dolphins by the bunch, got surrounded by pilot whales and the starry skies and fluorescence at night was breathtaking. it was amazing!
    how about you? how are things? what has the end story about the Americas cup racer?

    Hello again Phil

    We never got going last year with the delivery of my Westerly W35 from Marathon FL to Spain, I had family issues and ended up separating (with the usual hit to finances). Are you still willing to do the delivery, and if so could you review your price and schedule, but to Gibraltar, not Almerimar.

    Earliest I can be in Marathon is April, but only for a week or so to prep the boat for launch. I’ll retire at the end of April and can spend some time on passage prep then. I need to be back in Aberdeen in June.

    If you are still up for the job I can fly you over at any time after 01st April to meet together and to check the boat out and to prepare for the trip. Boat status is much as it was a year ago, summarized in my last e-mail to you.

    Phil, given my messing you around last year I will fully understand if you tell me to take a hike this year. If you decide to take the work on could you please update me your e-mail.

    Cheers
    Paul

    Hi I thought I would ask here. Basically I found my perfect Moody 30 in Ipswich and I need to get it to North Wales. Having problem finding a way to get it up here. I'm told by friends that the journey could take weeks and the standard of sailing needed on the south coast is very high and they don't recommend i do it till i get more experience. Hate to miss out on this Moody 30. Can anyone recommend a cheap but good delivery service by sea or road? She has plotters and radar etc and totally seaworthy.

    All is well. Snapped the boom in half coming across in Feb but no problem. Except that I had to spend more $$ when I arrived.

    Will I see you in LP this next season?

    Nothing weird there my Friend.....I must not of been around during your Oz experience...is it out there somewhere I can read if it's not imposing?

    Hey Boatman...I was sorry to see your "Atlantic Delivery " thread end although I suppose you probably was glad. It's amazing how many negative people participated but in the end they faded away. You have some great Friends her on CF, Atoll would be at the top of the list it seems to me. I hope the remainder of your trip went well....
