  1. I single hand Osprey all the time. Sail handling and setting up the wind vane is easy. The hardest thing to do alone is docking, and that’s not to bad if you have all your lines, boat hook, and fenders out. The photo is after her second transatlantic, the only damages after two years of sailing were two 1/4- 20 bolts one on the Monitor wind vane and one holding the reefing hook.
  2. I have a 1985 Pacific Seacraft 37 sailed it to Europe and back two year trip. Happy to give you any info I can

    Boat security systems

    My boat is a well equipped cruiser for me to remove all the equipment, SSB, VHF radio, Charting GPS, and all the other equipment. Would be like unloading my home.

    Boat security systems

    I think the best part of the system is the notification on the phone, and this system has a motion detector in the cockpit. A dog is a great deterrent however mine is old and friendly and can be defeated with a dog treat

    Yes that is the idea, there is only one road out of the marina and I am one minute from the entrance of that road.

    I have had a great time on any boat I have ever been on. Power, sail, or paddle. Race or cruising it all about being on the water for me.

    Four out of five captains on that boat thought that was a bad idea.
