Website for Beneteau 473

First off, I hope I am not breaking any Sailnet rules. I've learned a lot from this board in preparing my boat for cruising. Even so, I found it hard to find specific info on certain subjects, so thought I'd give back to the community by writing up what I've learned along the way.

So, if new buyers or existing owners are looking for a good place to gather info on the B473, I thought I'd share the link to my boats web page. It includes several write ups on modifications, purchase decisions, a blog about our sailing adventures, and even a SPOT transmitter so friends and family can track our progress via satellite (very cool for landlocked family). Most recent was our trip from San Francisco to San Diego (430nm). Upcoming is our trip from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas in the '08 Baja Ha Ha (over 1000nm with 180 other sailboats). Afterwards, she will be in La Paz for some winter cruising in the Sea of Cortez before heading hom to SF next Spring.

Thanks to the many folks on this board for your help and advice on everything from anchors to batteries.
