Sorry, it was a bit rough

SD thank you and you have a cause for concern with good reason, it is not to be taken lightly. i have ERIB and survival suit, i want an adventure and thus far have used this forum for advice over the past two or so years when i started to think about getting back to the water, to this point.

unfortunately i have the propane bulkhead heater, but will be taking an uncomfortable amount of propane. previous owner decided that, could replace everything.

yeah the swells were interesting, south of Lawson Reef east of Hein Bank, ended up heading for the hills, but what was great was i didn't hear any significant creaks and bulkheads stayed put. since then it has been surveyed, i have reinforced chain plates, support beam just in front of mast, and bulkheads, while on the outside sanded and reinforced weak spots around deck midship.
