Paul and Sheryl Shard (that couple that makes for many years documentaries around the world on cable TV) traded their old boat for a 42 and some years later bought a 49. It seems that they are living well and it seems they like the Southerlies and those two know one or two things about bluewater boats.

When I started looking into Southerly i came across them. They had a great blog discussing their boat and its modifications/preparations. I really enjoy learning about how people prep/modify boats for long distance cruising. There's such a wealth of knowledge! ...just like this thread :-)
