carol. I know the feeling, sailing alone on my Non Such 36 coming back north from the Bahamas I had two storms offshore which kept me up 48 hrs twice. for a sailor in his sixties it was exhaustion and no more single handling sailing for me. fortunately the Non Such is a very strong boat and even with two reefs in the gulf I could not slow her down over 9 kts for many hours with no moon. I also had problems on the ICW with 5ft 7 draft, because there are many area's not dredged because of cutbacks. I also have a centurion 32 sloop that is a great boat, but the non such is like a condo with all the equipment, 2 gen sets, water maker . Alt of stuff to take care of. Will have to decide what boat to use to go back to Keys and Exumas next season. I left Newport RI early in Oct. My insurance will not cover me 100 miles away from US no matter what month it is. Boats now in the beaufort NC where I have a house for sale. Newport this week visiting children and grandchildren. Don Clare SV Trinity
