    Hi - I have a question about your in-mast vs in-boom comment. We have a Beneteau and the mast broke a few weeks ago. We just got the insurance check. We had in-mast and liked it fine, but a lot of people at our club are encouraging us to go with in-boom - the idea being that you get better sail shape. Can you share your experience? We currently sail in SF and have taken the boat to Mexico, but are considering shipping to the Med one of these years, and I know you have a lot of experience there. Thanks.

    Hello my friend. Hope you are enjoying your summer. We are getting ready for our third attempt at moving the boat tomorrow. I am hoping that it goes well. I have enjoyed getting to know the boat but had wished it would be on a slower schedule LOL.

    We are planning a trip for the fourth of July week. Block Island, Newport and possibly Nantucket. We both need a break from what is going on and some time to kick back.

    How is the new boat going? were you able to sell the old one?

    Only once did we invite a friend to join us cruising. We soon found out that a boat becomes a very small place and never did it again as it is not worth losing friends. Two was company three was a crowd.

    If I were you I. contemplating an Atlantic voyage in September.I would bring the other boat across from east to west staying well south using the traditional trade wind route.

    The experts will no doubt disagree.

    Hi Kernomac,
    I never heard the term polishing fuel system except on the forum. Does the system filter the fuel or is a centrifuge system or something else.
    Thanks

    Ken,

    I use the Thomas 1207PK80. It will meet or exceed all your needs.

    Hello, In a post a while ago you mentioned good Frigoboat technician in Sardinia. Do you have their details. We are in Arbatax and our freezer has stopped working. Tried everything and can't get it going again. I hope you don't mind me messaging you. Howard

    Ken, good to hear your a RN as well. Can I ask you what age you are? Are you cruising by yourself or with a spouse? Do you full time now, or part time? What kind of nursing did you do?
    I'm a nursing supervisior these last 4 years in a 400 bed hospital here in Corpus Christi, after 29 years of ICU/CVICU. Wife is a nurse as well but now teaches. Soon to have her Phd in education. I'm trying to talk her into teaching online after I retire. But will have to wait for that first summer cruise and see. Almost talked her into a liveaboard travel nurse life, its one of the reasons we now live in Texas, but couldn't get a boat loan at the time. The life intervened.
