Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hi Paulo,

Sorry I have not been around much. We are really busy now on the boat and all it takes at home to go away for 5 or 6 years. We will be renting a house in Treguier for 3 weeks starting in early July then moving on board our Boreal.

I have a question, noticed in some of the pics that in France they use cranes instead of boat hoists on four wheels. Most of the world uses boat hoists as it seems a lot safer for boat and people involved.

Could it be because of the large tides? Or are the facilities in Northern France just behind the times?

Hope all is well.
