My dock neighbors Mike & Susan lived aboard their Hardin (45 I think) for several years preparing her for a voyage from SoCal to Turkey where they plan to liveaboard (her family's there). The boat was absolutely done to DEATH, we were all sure that there's a nuclear reactor in there somewhere. I mean backup systems to backup systems and he did it all himself. A truly gorgeous boat. Anyway, they left several weeks ago heading south, I think they plan to turn right somewhere past Mexico. They're planning on setting up a website & blog of their journey. When they get it set up, I'll link it here so you Hardin folks can follow their adventure and find out how the boat's performing.
