UPDATE: After a long summer coordinating the delivery of our new 1979 Pearson 365 Ketch, she is finally in her home slip in Seward, Alaska!
After our first delivery skipper quit on us after safely delivering POLARIS from Washington to Juneau, we worked with another skipper (and I'd be MORE than glad to give him a rousing recommendation if PM'd).
My wife and I, along with our delivery skipper, left Juneau, Alaska just over two weeks ago, dodged (sort of) two gales and arrived in Seward last Thursday at just about midnight.
The crossing of the Gulf was EVERYTHING we expected and one of the take-aways that we (my wife and I) have from our adventure is that our dream of sailing away when I retire is ABSOLUTELY do-able.
