Thanks, we're always glad when someone else is enjoying our adventures too!
We just finished posting a new blog entry. We don't do it very often because we're lazy and they always end up being way too long, but maybe you'll find it interesting. One correction though, the Sea Pearl manufacturer's website is: Welcome to Marine Concepts
The site you linked is the site of a good friend of ours and Sea Pearl enthusiast. We did most of our pre-voyage boat modifications at his house and he has a lot of detailed articles about that process on his site for people who are interested in that kind of thing.
