Congratulations on your new to you Amel, Mark &Denise! Welcome to the Group! With Bill and Olivier as your mentors, you are well along the curve of learning your boat.
I am in St Michaels, MD upfitting for a Pacific cruise in a year or so. Please contact me when you arrive in the Chesapeake. We'll hoist a beer/wine/rum or two.
There are several other Amel's on the Chesapeake, most owners will be happy to help in any way we can.
