In Now For The Rest of the Story Part 1, we revealed more details about our quest to bring this poor F-31 home and see her sail again. Here are some more pictures and videos from our time in Rock Sound.

Sailing (and other) adventures of Carleen and Jim often featuring us sailing or racing our trailerable trimarans.
Good work Car!!
Our max speed was 14 knots. It was in the morning when we were making the 88 mile crossing heading for Bimini.from abandoned Cat Cay..We were flying the screecher and after hitting 14 knots the bobstay let go causing the screecher halyard to sag so we decided to douse it and change to the jib.
You got some real rnice sunset shots in the family photos
Don’t forget about the flying fish…they were awesome!
