Our 3 hour-12 mile sail to Isle Au Haut, was nearly perfect.

Waking up at dawn flanked by mysterious Devil and Bold Islands, is a good start to a memorable sail in my book.

Re: Volvo Engines

Donna, if it helps, a handy rule-of-thumb is to ask questions if the engine is more than 20 years old. If the owners can show it's been rebuilt, that's probably quite okay - but if they can't, then...
