Long range on a Contessa 26: Bigoceans

This got a favorable plug on Latitude 38:

Bigoceans | Tiny Boat

Pretty cool that he could twitter and send pics to Flicker all the way across the Pacific on such a small boat:



Worn windvane control line.

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.

No, it's 7000nm of use.

Looks to me like too much time on the threads of a turnbuckle.

Well, to re-iterate, as the owner of the above boat, it was 7000nm of use that frayed the control line, not the block, or the turnbuckle...
