Mutiny has its reward, perhaps???

I don't think so.

But hardship and raging sea will make us all better sailors. Perhaps it gives us more appreciation when kindness comes in our way.

This is my first delivery this year from Jamaica to FLL. My dark tanned skin from last year was all gone. After my two back to back deliveries last summer after the mutiny TransPac race, I need to focus on my work and the family. I am back again in sailing the big ocean.

Here are a few picture I took about my trip:

The boat is a 2006 59 ft Fractional cutter rig, designed by Robert Perry for the owner. This was his second boat done by Perry. The owner has sailed her from SoCal thru Panama and eventually ended on hard at Trinidad. Captain B resumed sailing her thru out Caribbean and ended in Montego Bay. There is where I came in. I knew of this boat for a long time, but I was hesitated to write to him since I am not even a USCG license Captain and no endorsement by the rich and famous. I picked up my courage and wrote to him. He called me and the conversation went well. I was "really really" want sail his boat and learn from him. He has 44 years sail racing experience from Chicago MacRace to TransPac (8 x). I tried so hard to impress him to get on board. I did not hear from him for a few days. I wrote to him again. He replied back, and said: Dude, You are hired.

I flew down to Jamaica. After unpacked and a late lunch, he put me to work immediately for some urgent things before we can head out. Because of the size of the boat, her system is so complicated and was built with safety redundancy. I told Captain B that the biggest boat I have sailed was 45 ft production boat. .... LOL.

Urgent items:
1. 24 volt system is not charging or loss charging rapidly.
2. two refrigerators are not working
3. water Contamination of Starboard tank (two integrated tanks with 175 gal each)
To be continued



Air draft is 85 ft, with three spreaders






I left my mark. After all I am a proud member of MOFYC.

Re: Mutiny has its reward, perhaps???

I am glad that I am not the owner, I don’t need to sweat in front the Custom of Jamaica. Don’t laugh, the owner filled out about 14 forms and I filled 6 forms because Captain B was so fed up, before we were cleared to sail back to U.S.

Their country, their rules. Don’t they have a photocopier …… LOL



At least we had a local to move our provision onto the boat. Hahah…. It used to be my job.



Two Freezers and two refrigerators, each has its own compressor. You talk about redundancy at sea.




Huge winch, Lewmar 66


8 winches in the cockpit, total 11 winches plus windlass. There is one winch in the Owner state room below deck for the halyard of two headsails.

Not too many boat can place the big dingy behind the mast



Plenty of fishes or least Barracuda, we have to release all of them.


We kept this one for dinner. Not sure what it was, Jack? Edited: Confirmed as a horse-eye Jack.

That's awesome Dog!

So, are you the J-crew looking dude straddling the boom or the Mr. Clean sitting at the helm? Where to next?

VERY Awesome!
I hope to be teaching Sailing this summer. I HAVE my Captain's License, and I can only dream of a delivery like that...

You know, I probably could have fixed the 24V system...
[EDIT] And I bet that Denise O30 probably could have fixed the refrigeration...

Thanks for sharing.
