Although the first fall rapidly intensifying low is passing over us, with winds gusts to 55 knots, we have been blessed with amazing weather, including another lovely weekend coming up! Glad to see several of the Mystic boats going out. Block Island is just as lovely now as in the summer, with no shortage of low priced slips!!
We were hoping to preview the Jonmeri 40 this friday to members, but decided it was prudent to wait till she was launched in about 2 weeks. Just getting on board up the ladder is not for everyone. Big changes with the Jonmeri, the cockpit modifications are close to done and she now has a single 14′ long cockpit with a walk thru transom. The new Yanmar diesel has arrived, new sails and B&G electronics ordered, teak decks are off, etc. For sure we will be taking her south just after Thanksgiving, with an earliest departure date on November 29th, eta to Bermuda on Dec 5-6th, eta to St Thomas Dec 12-14th.
