    I did quite some shorthanded ocean miles on a 34 footer with a Monitor windvane and, if you have enough apparent wind, it's just fantastic. The easiness to set, fix and the lack of any noise makes...

    Hi all,

    Thanks for your words of support! Things are slowly moving, as I just got the check from the insurance, and that definitely helps! (but it'll still be uphill for a while...).

    Thanks for the comments, I made it to the lifeguards boat just before she turtled... it would have been pretty messy otherwise.

    It's a big longer than the second leg of the transat (3700 vs 3100 miles), but I think that could be lots of fun... if we manage to find a place to store all the water!
