I went back to check my notes, it was Morgan OI 41, center cockpit. He bought it from an organization that accepts the donation boats. My initial impression (stayed in boat for 3 hours), he spent lot of time and resources to make the boat like a home, AC, washer and dryer, water maker but no gimbaled stove. There was no improvement or spending money to upgrade the original rigging and sails. The owner is an intelligent fellow and given the time he will get there. But as now, he seems a bit misguided.
I sent him my suggestions, but he has not replied to my email. So I am not sure if he left MH city yet.
Have fun sailing south.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
