Got her Home
« on: March 08, 2016, 01:09:33 AM »
  Well I finally got Solitude home from North Illinois a couple weeks ago. The more time I spend rooting around through all the goodies the PO left in her the more I love this boat.  Swear the PO must of owned stock in West Marine.     I have a few little projects to finish, making the AIS of the new Standard Horizon vhf communicate with the Garmin, make a mast raising system and a little cleaning.  Can't wait to get her in the water.  Has finally warmed up enough that I think Ill try the V-bearth out tonight.   Life is good.

   I'd really like to know how you like your 25. There are not many around and they seem to have a little bit of everything. I'm curious how they sail. Love the idea of standing headroom and trailerability. Best of luck to you!

So far I love it,  haven't had her in the water yet.  The build quality seems top notch.   When I have a few miles under the keel I'll post more on the sailing aspect.
