I love to design, build and love to Cruise big sail boats. I have been playing with sail boats for over fifty years and beginning to learn the basics of sailing.
My present boat was used hard for about fifteen years, chartering and cruising. The boat is a great boat for blue water cruising. So instead of replacing it, I am restoring the boat to better than new.
