Nothing upsets me more than to see a good boat go to waste. Nothing restores my faith more than to see a good boat put back the way it should be!
Congratulations, many years of fair winds and adventure to you!
Thanks for the comment. Crikey, looks like youve had a busy restoration project underway. Sure looking smart now, good for you! Is she nearly finished to the point you can go sailing and enjoy?? She will be a fab boat around the keys and Bahamas etc.
Have fun and hope the sticky epoxy changes to dried salt spray soon!
Seeing your photos, it looked like Bahamas to me, and sure enough it IS the Bahamas. When will you be back? Can we meet you and see the boat in Abacos? There is another Pahe 42 Capt Cook design sailing in Green Turtle, Abacos at Black Sound and we have Peace mostly around Manjack in Abacos located just four islands north. It would be fun to have a mini meet out there. Looks like a nice boat you got there!
