You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

jrd22 will become famous soon enough
Thanks everyone, we are really anxious to get it home. I'll post some pics after we get done with it, it needs some much needed TLC. I've got it scheduled to go into the paint/fiberglass/wood shop around the first of the year, so by February it should be looking pretty nice!

Faster- It is like our NS 34, only on steroids. It was built as a bluewater boat and has been all over the South Seas. Started out in Seattle and now is coming home. The teak decks are actually in good shape, but I don't know if I want to risk leaks in our famously damp climate.

Valiente- you are right, a bridge deck is important. In addition to the folding lower doors there are also boards that can be fit into the slot and secured semi-permanently.

Moonfish- Hi neighbor, we will be keeping it at Blakely Is. Hope to see you out there in the islands sometime.

Gui- Polish? Yeah, you are right, the whole boat needs a lot of polish. Give me a couple of months, you won't recognize it. And we are going to have some fantastic voyages on it.

John

You might want to contact Ted Brewer through his website. He's pretty approachable, and you might find out what other people have done with this design by way of customization and improvement. Brewer's boats are frequently semi-customized, and I find some great ideas on boats like this.

There are an awful lot of bolts for the two backstay chainplates on the transom.
