After 6 years refurbishing our Westsail 42, this is what she looked before and when we left on our world adventure.

Our Plan

We hoped to retire in approximately 7 years. We expected to take between 3 and 5 years to complete the refurbishing of a Westsail 42. It took 6 years on the hard and another year of shakedowns and use in the water. If all went well, we would retire and then head off into the Sunset. Instead we retired, and headed out to the nearest anchorage on a brisk, cold, drizzly day. Sunsets followed later.
