I think this is great and nice to know as I sit in my comfy 42 this cold but warming up southern california slip that others are doing the same. I only wish that my previous wife now ex could have accepted this boat as an addition to the family. However it was the final straw in our marriage and next thing you know I am a boat person. However after almost a year of constant work and restoration living through the endless carpentry, painting, window replacement,varnishing, and electrical redo I see the end in site. I took her out for the first time last week and blew a tranny seal which I have replaced and hope to test out shortly. I love my boat and love my boat live. My only regret is that I am not in a position to cruise long term yet as I have a business and kids still in school.
