Dan is alive and well.

FYI -- Dan is very active on the Pearson email list here on Sailnet. His wife is a doctor and very soon they are moving from NC back home to the Cleveland area. Dan's 10M has been in his driveway in Winston-Salem for about 2-3 years while he has gutted the thing and is building it all back. But for the last few months have been a crash for him because of house hunting, house selling, a kid to look after, and a boat (still undergoing projects) that he is about to have trucked to Ohio. Just thought you'd like to know.

Thumbs up We love ours

We have a 1974, hull number 47 and love it. With the tall rig it is a fast, easy to sail boat. Sea Jules has been re-powered with a 20hp Perkins diesel. The deep keel is cause for concern sometimes as we cruise the Chesapeake. We have Barient 26's and wish we had self tailing, but other projects always seem to be higher priority. We have recently:

1. Added blocks and a winch to the top of the cabin so we can raise the main from inside the cockpit.
2. Installed a single line reefing system, again, so we don't have to leave the cockpit.
3. Installed a strong track system to raise the main with ease.
4. Installed lazy jacks.
5. New bimini and dodger.
6. New class D VHF.

As you can see, we keep find new ways of parting with our disposeable income. It's a great boat!
