Dear Shipmates

Introduction

Hello fellow adventurers!

I have had our boat for 7 years, and have been refitting all along. She's a 1988 Bristol center cockpit sloop. Well found, with all new (ca. 2019) electronics, standing and running rigging, sails, etc. Ample battery capacity, solar charging, watermaker, and a genset to help when needed. Diesel is in very good shape for her age, newly overhauled fuel system. Plenty of spares and tools onboard, and we stay on top of maintenance. The boat has an aft master cabin with centerline queen and a head with shower. A v-berth and a starboard cabin forward, each of which could sleep 2 but there needs to be room for gear and stuff so probably only one of those cabins would be used. Those cabins share an additional head with shower. There are good off-watch settees in the salon. Full cockpit enclosure to keep out the rain, up-to-date life raft and the usual safety gear.

Recent big life changes.... Looking for 1-2 crew that want to take the plunge and try exploring the world (or parts of it!) by boat. It's a lot of work.. for the folks I'm looking for, that aspect helps make it more rewarding.

Many more details available after we correspond a bit...

Cheers!

She's been sailed quite a bit in the Chesapeake. The boat is readily handled by two (although launching and recovering the asym spin would be easier with a couple more hands on the foredeck!). In 2019 we aimed for Tortola (with 2 additional crew) but had to turn back 200 miles off Hatteras due to crew illness (unadvertised seasickness and December don't get along very well!). Brought her around Hatteras from Beaufort in the Spring of 2020. Summer of 2021 saw 3 months cruising up to Maine and back. Winter of 2023 was spent cruising the Bahamas. About 5000nm on her so far. Have taken Emergency Offshore Medicine, Safety At Sea, numerous classes, and have ASA 101-104.
