Nice post, JS.

Vertues are found all over the world and have been sailed all over the world. There really aren't all that many for sale since most get handed down as family heirlooms. If you wanted a small boat to do some serious ocean cruising, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything better.

"Wanderer III" wasn't a Vertue.. but it was definitely J. Laurent Giles.
