Thank you Eric, I very much appreciate all the great advice.  It was a good passage close hauled the majority of it.  No major issues, KOA handled everything with ease.

Thank you Bill, you were absolutely with us the entire trip, without your advice, reference resources and patients, we would not have been ready for that passage.  I cracked the book open more than once.

That's a big one.  I guess they are mostly shorter after that.  Congrats!

Thank you Jason, the west to east route was an adventure for sure.  Hard port tac most of the way posed challenges with the heads and vapor lock on the engine. 1st time cought me and we fried the impeller. Fun chasing the blades up the system.  Was ready for it the second time, had to pop a hose off start the motor til water came out then all was good in the world. I did the ol start the motor trick twice a day but that did not do the vapor lock, I am sure it blew the water out of the exhaust though.  As for the heads, it took a long time to get the water to start running in the toilet when on that tac.  Other than that is was a great time.

Hello Chip,
I am going to be purchasing an Amel in about 1.5 years.
If you happen to be in the Bay Area would there, be a possibility, I could come see your Amel?

I am very interested in getting on board one since I have not done this yet.

BTW I have sailed the reverse route you did from San Francisco 16 days on a 33ft Homebuilt trimaran. 16 days at sea and one of the best adventures I ever had out of high school.

Tim,
Sorry man,  I have no plans to be in the BA, only south from here. There are a few Amels up there I don’t recall the names.  Good luck on your quest, it’s a good one.

Hi Chip,
I take it your autopilot did not give you any problem!  These Amels can be summed up in one word-Passagemakers!  Are you in San Diego already?  If so, email me so we can get together.
