Does anyone know whatever happened to this nice couple? After reading so many of their posts it’s hard to understand why they just stopped updating their site.


Neil Phillips March 19, 2017 at 07:29

Not sure, the boat was last heard of in the US, then nothing. Hope they are ok, we met them in Southampton a few years ago just before the big adventure.


Anon August 6, 2017 at 13:52

They sold the boat. The boat is in the Chicago area and has been renamed and re flagged.

Do you have any regrets or things your design differently?
We’d love to follow you example… should we just copy your spec or change it a bit?

This looks like a selling list to me?

Haven’t heard from you in a while, you’re not thinking of calling it a day are you?
