  1. Wow! How fast were you going? The good thing about having a low freeboard is that you get a really exciting sense of speed once the wind gets up.

    A boat that you can walk sideways across a stern tide must be beautifully balanced. Guess you will perform the same manoeuvre when you come in again now you have the knowledge?

    Jorum has a lot of stbd prop walk in reverse so we have to take that into account all the time.

  4. When is you blog going to start again? I have followed it with great enjoyment!

  5. Hi Bill,

    Having recently bought my first cruiser, a Folksong called Matilda (Aug ’09) I am in the early stages of a major winter refit. Having come across your website whilst searching for information, I was wondering whether you might be able to give me some advice? I have found your blog to be very inspirational (may even start my own) and hope to hear back from you, Thanks
