oyea Marco

We were having a glass of wine last night and Penny was wondering about you guys are and where you are. We left Ca. last August to look at a boat, went back to Ca. and dumped everything, sold the motor home and moved to Fl. We boughy a 47 foot ketch and are currently redoing her hopefully ready for Nov  season. Hope to hear from you soon.

Give our love to Amy and the kids.

as it happens, the engine was overheating because of several air pockets on the hose between the solenoid and the heat exchanger. So after all, the engine is running great. Tomorrow trolling day for me, to test the engine for a whole day, and may be have some fun in the processs.... After two days of depression, and trying to cheer myself up from no having a working engine, I had a beutiful sunny day with an engine that is purring like a cat.I love my boat again...

Hi Terri, well that's life. At least I'm saving the money I would have to pay to the boatyard :-). It is hard to have enough patience to deal with these things, but then, I'm a very patient person. You have to when you have that many children :-).

Have a merry chritsmas too. We are moving to the boat just after chritsmas!

Hi DWS. Everything is alright on this side of the world. Good news is the boat is back on the water. The bad news is that the engine is overheatiing, so there's still more work ahead to find out the reason.... I suspect is a bad thermostat, since the engine was teste on the dry several times without problems. I'll post some pictures of the launching soon.

Ok, to those of you that have commented about the pictures, and to be fair: First thanks, and second, most of them have been taken by my wife, who happens to be very artistic (she's a stain-glass/fuse glass artist).

Hi Jenny, That's the way we are heading on march next year. Chagos, Maldives, Sri Lanka (may be), Thailand and Indonesia. So if you guys are still around, we might get to meet anyway. Never met Sally, Richard or Ron. I have stayed away from SYC for some time (only go there for lunch, since it's so close to my office). My boat is on the dry, so don't get to use the dingy dock that much. In any case, happy to know that you guys are still around (in the IO) and enjoying cruising.
At 11:59am on March 30, 2009, Jenny said…
Hi Marco - thanks for the message... yes, we were in the Seychelles for 8 months then headed for Maldives, Indonesia and Malaysia (Langkawi) for three months then a month in Thailand and now we are in Panang and heading South.. it would have been great meeting you and the family! We have been sailing for two and a half years from SA with our three teenagers, now 15, 16 and 17 and it has been wonderful! I found that sailing with kids can be real trying but if you have been adventurous with your kids they seem to get into the sailing rather easily and can surprise you! Your pics are wonderful! Have you met Sally and Richard on Taylor? Or Ron on Cha-lee?
Anyways, hope you don't mind that I added you - you never know if you may come down to these parts....

Thanks L.O.L.A,

Boat is capable, came all the way to Seychelles from Russia with a bad skipper and worst crew. They actually put the boat on the reef here, on a perfectly well marked channel. Go figure. The interior is very rough and spartan too. Russians boatyards do excellent steel work, but apparently are not that great on the carpentry side :-). I find boat is on the smallish side, considering my 4 kids, but that's what we have. With the economic recession we'll be having for the next years, a bigger boat is totally out of the question.

First off...WHAT A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY, and your photo skills are outstanding.

Your boat looks very capable..tell me more about the boat, and do you have pictures of the inside.

Wow 4 children on a will have to share how that goes. It will be a real living education. I know
a family w 2 children, and the parents have to endure a great deal. You signed up with the proper group.

Your family looks very happy..I wish you all well. I am requesting to be friends.

With can send message under persons name,
where it says send a message. Have a great day.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
