    Thank you for sharing. I appreciate that, always useful to read about other people own experiences.
    Yes my main experiences is on the other part, the Northern Atlantic part, and the Mediterranean part and the Baltic part. I don't know why, I always ended up in the North :D
    Life is full of surprise.

    I don't like the boat... too much wood to maintain... kidding

    And that is where I come from, the north. Being familiar with the higher latitudes means being familiar with harsh conditions.
    A autumn day on the North Sea with a boat "standing upright on the prop" every other moment, tells you very quick that the boats you find in the Caribbean or the Med in the marinas are rarely the "real" stuff for passages. And it tells you that sizes matters.

    Regards

    I have not lost anything in those higher latitudes. Give me bikinis, coconuts and sunshine. We used fog horns to announce that the women lost theirs tops - no fog around here. Radar is for finding birds so we find Dolphins(the fish). And there is always another island close by. Don't worry be happy.

    There is something about Ilona of Kylesku's freeboard that just bothers me. I suspect if the bulwark was a different color, it would visually lower the sheer and ease my pain. Other wise a lovely thing.
