She's been a great vessel for us. Purchased in 2016, spent 1 winter in the Channel Islands then sailed down to Nayarit last December. Numerous trips around our area to Bahia Banderas and Isla Isabel. Spent most of last winter anchored in Chacala, using the boat daily. Time to buy a van and pass her along.
