Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.
Hello All, I am John the proud owner of the Mayflower 48 Elegance. I have owned her since new (8 months in Taiwan) and have covered well over 50,000 nautical miles. She did not move from 1993 until mid 2009 when we decided to refurbish her. She now looks great again and is better than new mechanically and electrically. More spent then she cost I might add.
I have never written to any forum of any type so will not go on too long but will be happy to answer any questions. My original crew was my wife and 2boys who were 3 and 4 when we set off. We returned to England via Australia, South Africa, Brazil and the Caribbean but after 3 months at home we decided to go again. This led us back to the Caribbean (3 Atlantic crossings in 1985) and then through Panama to Australia via Galapagos, French Polynesia, Samoa and Fiji. We applied to live in Australia where we have been since 1989.
Elegance has proven to be a superb and quite fast passage maker. She is very comfortable and easy to handle.
Main reason for joining is "Can anybody help me with Mayflower 48 sail plan or sail dimensions"? I would appreciate your help.
