Shanti sold.

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Off into the Sunset…

Actually, it was a little gray on Sunday when Ken—Shanti’s new owner—and his friend Deborah picked her up at the dock, reviewed how the GPS and the head worked, and sailed off into the bay.

Best of luck and fair winds (but not too fair, she likes a good breeze…)


Still for sale?

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Yes, Shanti is still for sale.

Since I’m super busy with work and family (the exact reasons I’m selling) and because I really love the boat and have been enjoying an occasional sail and the theraputic values of ongoing boat work, I’ve been very apathetic about any sort of salesmanship or listing effort, basically relying on word of mouth (and people stumbling across this blog).

Eventually, the boat and a new owner will come together. Happily for them, they will also get the benefit of the brand new North Direct #3 (100%) NorDac furling cruising jib I bought and installed this summer…

Angel Island Picnic

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

Took Shanti out for a motor to Angel Island, where she served as a “home base” for kids and adults who wanted out of the sun during our company picnic. Chas and Carlin from Bend and JerryO helped pack food for 20 into a 30 foot boat and with the delivery and return.

Angel Island picnic tip: The “first come first serve” spots are way better than the reserved spots. Arrive on the first ferry (or by private boat) and I can’t imagine you will ever, ever have a hard time grabbing a good site.

Shanti pictures

Some pictures of Shanti at rest. The fact that she looks a lot smaller than reality in the “from the cockpit” view is  balanced by how spacious and comfortable she looks in the interior shots.

Shanti is for sale

With work and family, she just doesn’t get sailed enough. It stinks to leave a boat like this tied up.

She’s something special: A whole load of 2010 PacCup/TransPac dreams could easily fit aboard.
