Thanks Large Luke.

Wow is right, eh? Astrid and Bjorn have had so many amazing experiences, but what also struck me was how much fun they seemed to be having. They hit inclement weather, have encountered boat repair issues, and have had to ferret out ways to make money along the way, but they take it all as part of the adventure. I love that! Definitely a very cool couple...

Hi EvelynL,

The boat is a Feltz Scorpion II and was built in 1981 in Germany. Astrid said it was typical of that time with a long keel and round bilge.
