Winding down in Sausalito

We've had a good couple weeks in the bay area riding bikes, eating too well and catching up on sleep. We also got to catch up with Amy Frykman and Dan Brekken last week, 2 friends that we hadn't seen in a long time.

Pau Hana now is officially for sale. There's been a lot of interest and we expect to have a sale finalized by the end of the month. They say the happiest days in a sailors' life are the day you buy your boat and the day you sell it.... but I don't think I'll be really happy until I'm restocked in the van and mountain bike department. There will be some transition from a floating party to a rolling one. Here's a few pics from the ad:

My parents visited from Minnesota this week. We went sailing when it was a bit too windy and ate some ridiculously good food. I'm sure they enjoyed the last 3 years of aiding and abetting: delivering winches to the Caribbean, carting home winter gear, bringing our road bikes from NZ to MN, manufacturing a custom gooseneck toggle, and finally, bringing our road bikes from MN to CA (packed with some cookies, too.) Thanks for all the help!!

  1. I'm hoping a book is written that includes the pictures and documentation of this wonderful adventure.

  2. How 'bout a link to the listing?

    Gotta keep that promotion going.


  3. It's in Latitude 38, so far no broker. You have to scroll down quite a ways to find it.
    Cheers, Lexi

  4. What kind of Electric Windlass do you have? We also have a a Pretorien and are thinking of upgrading soon from our Manual Windlass. Do you recommend it ? Welcome to Sausalito! We also keep our boat in Richardsons Bay.

    1. Hi Tessa! Great to hear there's another Pretorien in the neighborhood! We're still running a manual Lofrans windlass so I can't advise you in that regard. The onboard anchoring staff would definitely prefer an electric one, though. Stop by sometime if you're near Clipper!
