SandSea is on a distinguished road
I was a crew member or "extra help" taking a ND56 from Texas all the way to Virginia. My 1st time doing this sort of thing so forgive me if my terminology is off. It was around May of 2006 & what stormy winds and waters she took us through! I always felt very safe, she was a big strong floating protector. She took us so far out, to sail among the stars, dolphins, sea birds and oil rigs. We averaged about 6-8 knots most all of the time (even at night), which I thought was fairly speedy. I have visited her a few times since and I'll be with her again soon, to head to Ft. Lauderdale where she will be put up for sale. She is strong and reliable, I hope she finds a good home.
