Greetings all. First of all, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and all that stuff. I must apologise for having been so useless recently, having not posted anything for quite some time. Fortunately Sarah has picked up the slack 🙂
I’m just posting this as an FYI – although I haven’t written any actual blog posts recently I have written a rather lengthy reply to a fellow owner of a West Indies 36 who contacted us recently via the comments section. I got a bit carried away in my email to him and ended up writing something that may or may not be of interest to others. It’s a semi-technical account of some of the modifications that I’ve made to Bob, some of the work done to her in order to return her to a state of ship-shape-ness following many years of neglect, some modifications and adaptations made for this voyage specifically (including some of my views on best practices as far as preparations for extended cruising are concerned) and a bit about heavy weather tactics on Bob, since those are the topics that the gentleman asked about. For those interested it can be found at the bottom of the ‘about Bob’ page.
