as cruising, is it? You work so much harder. Especially if you are moving the boat. That's what happened to us. We went on a six week vacation on the boat last year and this year we are off cruising again. We just ordered a new main that should be ready in a couple of weeks and it looks like we are on track for late October or the first week in November departure. Their's nothing like a good dinner in the cockpit in some nice anchorage.
