    What a wonderful voyage home! As you obviously feel, a microwave is no big deal. Glad to hear all the systems worked well.

    Fantastic job! Congratulations!

    Glad you made it through the storm OK. Quite a shakedown cruise. That part of the Strait of Georgia can be pretty nasty.

    It sounds like a very well planned and run trip, Travis. Glad you're pleased with Zuri. Well done!

    It's been a while since I've posted so I'm overdue for an update.

    Progress has been made, I've been pretty busy these past few months.

    Sailtracks, sails, cleats, halyards and winches installed. She's in sailing condition now.

    I've also sewed new sail covers, and am currently working on a cockpit cover.

    I've taken her out a few times - still dialing things in.

    Here she is on my first solo sail. It was a 4 day trip to Sucia Island in Washington. I'm very pleased with her sailing.




    About 1:20 you can see the tiller lashed. She sailed herself that way for a couple hours. You can see the Shellback in tow too.

    Travis.

    Yes, you have been busy, Travis, with all that and your job as well. Zuri is going along very nicely. I'm envious of that steady breeze and practically flat water. We visited Sucia Island in 2012, on the schooner Zodiac. It was a very interesting trip.
    Sorry we didn't see you at Port Townsend.
    Regards, Ian

    I noticed that lashed tiller! Nice that you have a well balanced boat and can wander around a bit.

    The cockpit looks cosy!
    My dog hates the boat - the movement freaks her out. But we rarely get water like that.

    Nice work, looking really beautiful.
