Scott and Connie pursue a new course. Go now, go cheap. So we shed our belongings, simplified our lives, saved up a little money, and started learning Spanish. After four years cruising Mexico we decided to bring Traveler to the Pacific Northwest. We crossed the mighty Pacific to Hawaii first. Then after cruising Hawaii we crossed over to Alaska, then south to the Salish sea.
So we hauled her out of the water.. all 35,000 pounds of her. (According to the Travelift scale) We saw her blisters, we saw her thru hulls, we tapped the hull and rudder. There was some softness on the top portion of the rudder but otherwise the bottom seemed OK. There were blisters, sure, but that's to be expected on a boat this age.
