With this cost plus the investment in time and money getting the boat from source to Panama, once again the logic of buying a vessel on the east coast is sketchy when looking at the used boat stock available on the west coast.

The whole voyage description seems a little dodgy, male or female ought to be real careful about a crew position here.

The longest journey starts with one step.

At this stage I'm wondering whether to retain a lawyer to represent me. Are there any lawyers in the house?

The fun and frivolity ended some time ago now, and I was under the impression that we had exhausted this post.


Andre, it's a well held belief that Kiwi sailors are an exceptional breed as sailors. Day sailing in the Cook Straits over to Picton in 9 meter seas in 7's and 8's is a picnic for you guys; I've been told.

The way you write (not withstanding that you did not direct your words directly to me) leads me to believe that you are a very experienced sailor. Perhaps you have several circumnavigations under you belt. Perhaps even one via the great capes the wrong way round.

As such what would you suggest to this coastal cruiser, from your own experience, regarding transiting the Pacific in the shortest time.

Zephyr.

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.

Could it be that someone is not getting the answer they wanted. Perhaps next time if we just started with the correct answer all would be well.

Tesh, et al,

All's well that ends well. BTW, you did start with the correct answer.

I never thought that my very first post would carry to 93 replies; and what an entertaining and educational time it has been.

The onslaught that was dished out early on was of an exceptional quality and generated much amusement for many, including myself (please read the first paragraph of the original post carefuly), in several instances I was ROFL.

However, this whole thing's getting a bit tired and I would not like to see it get to #100.

Now armed with the wisdom of many, I will get on with the job of planning for an ocean crossing. If in the event that this does eventuate, I will be sure to follow Simon's lead and access email on my stops to keep you posted. In the mean time I hope to continue enjoying the comraderie of the Sailnet Community.

Best regards and good sailing,

Zephyr

Zephyr,
I've been resting up just to get back into the scrum. Is it really over?

(see you in some other threads, you're a good egg!)
