Default Jeanne, how's the switch to power?

Jeanne, I'm wondering if you've written up anything 'reflective', offering somewhat of a perspective on how the switch from sail to power has gone for you two. Not so much the day-to-day 'synthetic oil' and 'gals/hr' stuff, but more of a personal commentary on how you've experienced the shift. I'm sure you posted logs on your website about the details...but if there's a 'The view from 30,000' up' commentary, I'd welcome the URL.

Many thanks!

Not yet, but I hope to do more this summer. Peter has been recuperating from bypass surgery so we won't be back on the boat for another couple weeks. We had to put the boat on the hard last Fall, and the yard is backed up so we haven't splashed yet. Soon, though. Soon.

In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".

Ouch. Didn't realize Peter was 'up on the blocks', so to speak. Glad to hear recovery is going well and life afloat lies nearby. May your launch be quick and easy.
