A sailor from my marina, Paul Lim, is off the horn right about now in his Spencer 35. He is well prepared including an aluminum dodger - not frame but the whole dodger. He left Puerto Montt on December 8th bound for South Georgia. He fully expects to have a rough time of it in a boat much better suited for this than a CS30. The Spencer 35 is the boat the late Hal Roth made famous. I own a CS27 and they are well built boats, but the CS30 is a fairly flat bottomed boat and is in my opinion not the design for that trip.

ps Paul is sailing from 50 south to 50 south as he considers going through the channels as "daysailing".
