Getting Together / Active Captain

I didn't know that the rivets had failed under normal loads. I'll be interested to hear what Olivier says about aluminum vs Monel. Twice the shearing strength is quite a difference.
As to our plans for this year:
It depends on when the CDrive is delivered and we can actually splash the boat. I think we will go South to Key West, then Turks and Caicos, then North thru the Bahamas. I would like to be in Maine be July. Then will go back South to the Western Caribbean for 2-3 years.
I haven't done it yet, but on Active Captain we could share our locations and know who is close by where ever we are.
Steady as she goes.

We use the aluminium since we want the rivets to brake before any other damages. If we remeber right, the first rivets was ordered from Amel and they were aluminium. They are easy to replace if you have the tool onboard. Which we recomend you to have!
Are you continuing south after your mast replacement? We will go slowly north grom Grenada to St Martin. Leaving St Martin for Europe in Mid late April, if you want to meet, which would be nice! Just look for the Amel SM With the swedish flag and a yellow dinghy on aft deck.
