Game on!

We signed a contract!

Her name is Aletheia. We'll drive from Denver to Halifax, NS in late July/early August, 2014, to the boat! The current owners' blog is down at the moment, so you'll have to wait to get more history of the boat. This boat is a middle ground between Pestilence and Zero to Cruising. Some nice creature comforts, a stout boat, plenty of communication and navigation electronics, but no air conditioning, no built-in fridge, no electric winches or windlass, no diesel engine.

We will likely change the name, and have several good contenders for names lined up. Anyone have any suggestions? We will, of course, have a ceremony such as the John Vigor ritual and voodoo for changing the name. Wouldn't dream of doing without. Miss a chance for good champagne?
