We met a lovely family in Mexico; dad Jim and son Brendan sailed the boat from Mexico to the Marquesas this season. They're getting ready to head home, and selling the boat. It's always been a short term cruise for them, but it sounds like the boat could keep going!
These are the guys who literally threw us a tuna when we were a couple hundred miles off the coast of Mexico in April (http://sv-totem.blogspot.com/2010/04/rendezvous-in-big-blue.html). I have a few pics of their boat, from the tuna event- and from their departure to cross- on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/giffordclan/tags/escapade/.
Here are the specs:
Edson Wheel steering with Raymarine Wheel Pilot autopilot
Spinnaker, 110, 150, storm jib and storm trisail
Gimballed two burner stove
Garmin GPS chartplotter
35lb CQR anchor, 33 lb Bruce anchor, Fortess and Danforth anchors
200 feet 5/16 chain
3 anchor rodes
Dinghy and 2 hp Honda outboard, dingy anchor
Yanmar YSE 12 motor
Hard dodger with canvas, sun shade
Gorgeous wood inside, very dry boat.
It been in San Carlos for the last five seasons, with lots of good TLC from Jim. They're asking $21,000. If anyone is interested, drop a line to lenard at imt dot net.
