Simon, thanks for the pics and congrats on the crossing.
Will you keep your boat or are you selling her?
I am interested to hear more about Ericson 39B as a cruising boat.

Thanks

Charles, I had to deal with the doldrums twice north of 00,00.00 I believe at the point I crossed it, was at its thinnest at about 80 miles; so about 10hrs at 6 knots the current runs at about 1.5 knots.

Beautiful pictures, Simon, that was one hell of a trip you did there, memories for a lifetime, I'm sure.

Keep 'em comin'!

Simon, I would imagine that the biggest enemy would be boredom out there. That and trying to keep an interesting diet. Was there anything that took you by surprise about the boat or the passage?
