Hola

My wife and I are currently sailing from California to the Virgin Islands aboard our 28ft Pearson Triton. We have put a lot of work in and have plenty of stories to share.

+1 and Ditto.

I also have a soft spot in my heart for older boats like your Triton.
My Tartan 27' is from 1967.

Would love to hear some stories. I have a '66 Triton (which alas, I'll be selling soon as I've bought a bigger boat) and would be interested to hear how you fitted out yours for long distance cruising.
