  1. I’m no expert , but it looks to me that the loss of containers is an accepted cost by not just the shipping companies but by the final recipient, for some reason we are just now starting to acknowledge and get upset with using the oceans as a dumping ground , particularly since the plastic is coming back to haunt us , and yet we continue to dump containers into the oceans and consider it somewhat ok since it’s an accident . Seems to me that if you were to put the containers into a ship you would have less of a ‘chance’ of losing them , bungee cording them 8 to 9 containers high above deck is a

Varan, won't be doing Whidbey (sad) but there's a good chance of doing the new race next year in Point Roberts
  5. Hull number 4 happily lake sailing in the okanogan ,if you like sailing get the Antrim if you you want to save money I'm sure there's probably a mcgregger closer to your neck of the woods
