Ownership history:
I purchased hull #210 in 2013 from Bayfield Ontario. Then the boat was named Time Passage. The boat had not left the Great Lakes, which was evident in its pristine condition. The bronze fittings had no signs of oxidisation at all. I hauled the boat to install its inaugural anodes.
From 2013 to 2017 I sailed Henry single handed from Bayfield to La Paz, Mexico via the Panama Canal.
Henry has been based in La Paz, Mexico since 2017. In 2019 I emptied the entire boat and stripped all hardware in preparation for interior and exterior paint works, which are now complete. All hardware and fittings have been installed and the remaining items - e.g. Monitor windvane, cushions, sails, solar panels - will stay in my apartment to avoid excessive exposure to sun and general weather conditions. The boat is hauled out of the water at Atalanta boat yard, with heavy duty sun shades for protection from the sun. A local guy washes the boat and airs it out once per month when I'm away for work. Engine is started regularly with anticorrosive coolant flushing.
Includes a vw beetle in matching colors.

Every time I leave the boat, the sails get rinsed and dried, then taken down and stored out of the elements.
