Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...
Side note on the guy I mentioned who is singlehanding a Bristol 27. Saw a post by him on CF (he is in New Zealand now). He said that he paid $1000 for his used Monitor which is what he paid for the boat. There is no one model of a cruiser.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
