Can she see the luff curl from behind the bimini and dodger? Seems like it would be difficult to trim that way.

Thanks...nice to hear from you.  I have thought a lot about what happened to your boat.  My guess is that the hull/deck joint on these boats might be a weak link.  I'm hoping to redo the interior entirely over the next couple of years and I'm thinking about adding in knees (I think that's what you call them) to tie the hull and deck together.  I'd quite honestly like to be able to go anywhere and feel safe with the boat.  It's likely the only boat that I will be able to afford for the next 5 or so years, maybe longer.  So...it's worth it for me to get it solid.  

 

Are you looking to purchase another boat?

 

I decided against an oven.  I don't bake a lot and the boat is pretty tight as it is.  I just bought a new (2nd hand) Force 10 2 burner non-gimballed propane stove and a sea swing one burner stove.   So at sea I should be able to cook and have hot drinks.  But generally will be at anchor to cook a bigger meal.  The rice riser sounds like a good idea.

 

I just bought an Omnia stove top oven too, so I should be able to back things.  

 

Anyway, thanks for the write up and your thoughts and good luck in further adventures.  

 

The East and West coasts tritons have different style of deck joint and untill you are doing any significant distance / offshore sailing I would suggest you focus your time and energy elsewhere. The boat as it was from the factory safely brought us throught storms, squalls and gales. People sail lifetimes without getting hit like we did and few boats would come away unscathed.

 

I actually bought a 48ft C&C recently; feels like a rocketship by comparison.

Yeah it's not going to happen this season anyway, but I thought it would be a good idea.  I'll probably be holding onto this boat for a while.  If I take out a section of the interior, I'll reinforce that section as I go.

If you are there you might as well. My point was don't make more work for yourself than you need to.
