Hey what about J/160, J/46 as great cruising boats as well!
Thought I would add a post to a terrific site. I have been umming and ahring over doing sort of what you have done successfully, by buying a nice boat to liveaboard and cruise on/in.
I loved your boat,although unfortunately out of my price range to start. Certainly an achievable target at a later stage. I would assume investing while at sea has it’s benefits for when you come back, as long as they are carefully chosen.
Anyway, thanks for the great advice on buying a boat, you certainly have some great advice worthy of listening too in a year or two when I go out and buy my first ”eventual” love
Thanks for the great advice, and keep the posts coming, great adventures!!
Every couple of years something jogs my brain about adventure and living a dream and I am reminded of you.
Last time, a few years ago, I recall your Christmas letter from the tropics as you were drinking some frozen cocktail and enjoying the sun on Christmas day.
I looked at your site this morning. Great to see that you are still in the thick of it and are making the most of life on the seas.
You GO, MAN!!!!!
Hello George and Merima,
I am mesmerized by your site. What enthusiasm and energy you have to keep this site up.!
My target in two years time is to swap our family house here in Europe for an ocean going yacht to spend about five to ten years cruising. At the moment I am just looking at all the options for yachts that would be suitable, and am looking at all periphery requirements such as insurance, equipment and so on. I think the most doubtful and challenging aspects of world cruising for us is the requirements for entering various countries coastal areas. For example I heard (probably from you) that the Seychelles is difficult with no free circulation to the islands. Also the insurance of the yacht and the dangers of salvage claims when in trouble.
Keep writing. Now I found the site I will keep reading.!
CONGRATULATIONS. THE BOTH OF YOU SHOULD KNOW EACH OTHER BY NOW. HOPE YOU WILL DROP BY SF. REMEMBER 2013. AMERICA’S CUP.
Hi George and Merima,
I was cleaning out my closet the other day and I came across a book my dad put together. “Moonshadow, the final 6 months of George’s 16.5 year circumnavigation of the world!” I thumbed through it and realized I never fully understood how phenomenal this really was. I decided to look up the web site to see if it was still up and sure enough, here I am! I scrolled through the web site and I have to say, this is simply amazing, I never fully understood it during my younger years but now I can really see it. Even though it’s a bit late, I’d like to congratulate you two and the crew for finishing the journey and congratulate you on finding a buyer for the boat! Hopefully Moonshadow, as well as all of you, have many more years filled with many more adventures.
Best wishes from the states,
Nick, Nick, and Katrina.
