She looks good. I'll hand it to you, chris, you did it.
You surprised me.
After reading where you started (it would be easier if you hadn't deleted your posts,)
here, a year and a half ago, going from selling the boat

Tough thing to do... a sad rant

To talking about refitting the boat
Is this possible on around 10k?

To actually getting her in the water.

Well done.

You had all the hallmarks of being another no-money dreamer adding another stripped derelict to the back of boatyard, but you actually followed through. Good on ya.

In response to the threads that mention going around haterras: Have you gone around Haterras before--the "graveyard of the Atlantic" as they say? I recently heard about a sailor who went around the cape and went 60 miles out to avoid the shifting and unchartable shoals. Sixty miles out he hit a sunken ship and sank in less than five minutes. It's treacherous out there, and I have had countless cruisers advise me to simply go inside at norfolk and come out at Beaufort.

Now, on that note, we sailed literally 95% of the way from Norfolk inlet to Beaufort, excepting of course the dismal swamp canal proper. All the river portions and the sounds were navigable by sail alone.

Anyway, on that point, I would consider either going out 200 miles offshore or going inside on the ICW from Norfolk. a couple of good long oars on your winches and you could do 1-2 knots in the dismal swamp without a problem, and the rest of the way inside you could sail if you have the time

BTW, your boat sure does have a nice ass.

Thumbs up

Gotta agree with Blj.. very nice work indeed, you're both to be congratulated. Will be watching and tracking your progress from here on.

Way to disprove any and all nay-sayers.. Nicely done!

I get the mag Practical Sailor and the issue before the most recent there was an article saying you should have a good engine because most cruising sailors use their engine for 25% of the circum-navigations (number seems high to me but probably correct). In this month's issue, Webb Chiles wrote a letter to the editor stating he sailed 3 times (as I remember) around the world without an engine. Here is his link:

Looks like he has some good books (check out his site)
Regards and good luck

Can you do a circum-nav without RUM though?

You can't answer a question with a question BL... This could make or break a circum-nav, people need to know if it's possible!
