After much time, much deliberation, many test drives and lots of boat shows. Tom and I decided on a Jeanneau 43DS with a 2 cabin layout. It is not the square footage we are used to but it feels like home none the less. And the great adventure begins.
Tom being the genius that he is did a great job with the wind generator, solar panels and dingy davits. Only had to make a few minor adjustments. With several revisions later we are now ready to take it on! We have opted out of the water maker at this time as the cost is large. New and larger battery banks have been added. The newest and greatest electronics have been added. Two Raymarine E7(we have had lots of problems with it) with AIS and Sirius Weather have been added.
