    That's the truth. In fact, I may get locked in the yard if people start hauling their boats to avoid the hurricanes. Every available spot in the yard will get used.

    She's not been sailed much the past 12 months. We built a new house and that sucked up nearly all my available spare time. Hopefully, I'll get some more time on the water this Fall and Winter.

    Maybe. :d A Concordia may be slower than you think. 6-7 knots at best. Those Spirit yachts will add a lot more than 1.5 extra even if you discount their marketing claims.
