Re: Financing

Here is Liberty, formerly Marage before we set off for Newport, RI last weekend. Sorry to take her from you Veracity, but she has the best lines I've ever seen in fiberglass so I could not let her go. There are some nice Bristol 40s for sale in Mattapoisette, MA on Yachtworld.

Unfortunately her engine, which started fine for the sea trials, did not start so we made the dinghy up to power. My father, uncle and I worked together to pull her in at the Navy marina in Newport beautifully.

We averaged 8.5kts on the 103nm sail, broad reaching most of the way! At one point we hit 10kts if you can believe it! I've never sailed that fast on a CCA boat.

Now to fix/replace the starter motor on this unknown Westerbeke 53hp.
