Michael,

Thanks for the education re toasting of bagles. Who'd have thought it !!

For what its worth we toast 'em under the griller.

Btw, that cockpit enclosure of yours is amazing. That's almost as good as a pilot house. I'll be showing that pic to the Wombette. I'm sure she will be able to see herself in that shot. Not that she has any objections to sailing, she doesn't, but if you wanted to convince someone that offshore cruising can be warm, dry and comfortable then that is the pic to use.

Cheers

Andrew

That Hunter 49 looks pretty darn comfortable. I like the headsail options it has too--a good asset on a cruising boat.

You know I was just thinking, the title of this thread would be pretty funny had it been started by Sequitur's marina neighbor. Heh-heh.

Missed you by that much!

We went to Bay just this last weekend so we missed you by a couple of days. Hope you enjoyed the Blue Angels air show on Sunday. As you probably already know, the Bay area is expecting an unusually early big winter storm on Tuesday, so button down those hatches! Drakes Richardson Bay will get some big winds and these early storms will catch a few boat owners unawares so keep an eye out for drifting boats. I looked up on the Ha Ha website and didnít see your name. Does this mean you will be staying in the Bay Area for a while or are you heading south soon? Donít forget to stop in Monterrey, even if you are in delivery mode. Pardon me for prying, but reading between the lines, have you and your wife parted ways? MrsB isnít wild about doing the longer passages in our 34í and Iíd love to hear how you convinced your wife to stay home and how she allowed you to seek other crew. Hope you can take time and explore San Francisco. South Beach harbor has good docks. There is a lot of surge at the Pier 39 guest docks and combined with passing ferry wakes and about a thousand barking sea lions, not the most restful spot. If you have time to meander, Iíd also recommend cruising up the Sacramento River Delta for a week or two Ė completely unique experience.

Michael, welcome to you and your lady to our bay! The rain has kicked in tonight so I am imagining you warm and dry cozied down in your cabin.

The delta suggestion is a good one, it's beautiful. Mostly motoring though.

fair seas to you both.

Yes, we love it. We were warm and dry in 45 knot following winds and their resultant seas. The nice thing is that the side cutrains can be easily and individually rolled-up or can be quickly un-zipped and stowed away, striping us to a nice breezy bimini when conditions require.

Yes, we watched the practices on Thursday and Friday from Sausalito and the show on Saturday. Yesterday kind of fizzled because of the low overcast.

We just got back in from grocery shopping; we laid in enough fresh goodies that we won't have to go out again until after the system passes and it clears again. Looks like late Wednesday before things settle down.

We're not interested in doing the crowd things. Neither of us have ever been the sheep-ish type; we prefer to follow our own direction and timetable (or lack thereof). We plan on sailing south from San Francisco in a month or so. Meanwhile, I have many "coupons to clip" in the wine country from my days as a wine importer.

We've each been there many times; we now have other places to see.

It was simple; we talked rationally and decided to do a friendly, legal separation. After a couple of years apart, I suggested we do a simple uncontested divorce and she agreed. We kept the lawyers at bay, and the whole thing cost a few hundred dollars for paperwork and filing fees. There's a bit more on this and on my new mate on Sequitur's website: About Us

Thanks sara. We are nice and snuggly aboard this evening.

Late to this thread, just back from a Silva Bay Thanksgiving.. Congrats on heading out, and on a splendid passage by all accounts.

Re Patagonia.. there's a WVYC member (Ray Martin??) who has done that trip on a Spencer 1330 - a retired pilot. Did you happen to ever run into/chat with him and his wife? We had an amazing presentation from them at a GYC meeting. Their stories of "two anchors, 5 lines ashore, heeled over 30 degrees in the williwaws" were something to hear, and yet he made it all sound just the normal sort of thing to do.

They spent a couple of seasons, leaving the boat somewhere up a river in Argentina, I think, returning later to circumnavigate Tierra Del Fuego before sailing home via Marquesas, Hawaii and Alaska, I believe. They also spoke of pretty strict controls and reporting required by the Chilean Navy.

Anyhow good on ya and thanks for keeping us posted. Safe passages ahead!!

Micheal,

I am running so sorry I cannot give a longer response - but I saw this and wanted to quickly wish you the best. You deserve it and have been a great member here. I have always enjoyed reading your posts (and fighting along with you to inform people that production boats really don't sink when they leave the dock!!!).

I wish you the very best. Please check in when you can.

Sincerely,

Brian
