I taught myself to single hand her though sailing with company is fun too.Come see her and ask all the questions you like. I was not an expert sailor but I took the adventureseriously and while I never crossed the ocean I did get good enough to make it to the Keys, up the Gulfcoast, up the Caloosahatchee river, the Bahamas and through the inland waterway twice. After thatCape Cod and Boston felt like a skip around the block. She will truly take you anywhere.The name was not of my creation but came with a half witted dare and a story whose ending only getsbetter. I purchased her in Plattsburg NY on Lake Champlain from a talented Canadian Gentleman. Iknew I found what I was looking for but still I looked at a couple more before deciding to act. The seatrial was scheduled in April and the deal was done. I then waited for the ice to clear on the Hudson andthe locks to open. Her Yanmar 44 purrs and has the power to maneuver her confidently. She has theamenities to get you through all in good shape. I have manuals on all systems on board organized in twobinders including the boat manufactures and Yanmar manual. Once becoming familiar with, I found theAIS to be fabulous and a necessity on any long range vessel. My first and only remorse as a new ownerwas soon after purchase when the Alpha Marine auto pilot gave trouble but turned out my incorrect usebent the control cable. A new cable did the trick and its been my dependable friend ever since. Sparecable on board. As to recent updates my last southern journey was cut short in North Carolina due tothe pandemic but while there I had all five batteries replaced (Life Line) a new main sail (Rolley Tasker)the shaft was pulled and a new dripless bearing and cutlass installed. I just put a new wash down pumpand a fresh water pump in last month. Keep reading to see the whole package this serious cruiser comes with. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
