Yea, I have looked over his site. When I get into port I'll try to contact him and maybe pick his brain some. Though I could email him. And that book, and a couple others of his, is on my Amazon book wish list.

Mine has been to Austraila. before I got it. They sail very well. I saw the boat you are looking at, it sounds as if it needs lotts of TLC(your getting it at scrap value or less). Feel free to Message me.

Thanks for the insight, I'll send you a pm for sure.
