Re: 'Athos'

A fine looking vessel Dave.  Obviously it would require a significant crew to sail.  A friend has a 37 ft C&C but even that is much more work than I would like.  Nice that it costs next to nothing to go somewhere but then there is the maintenance, seasonal dockage fees, and the here, the costs of hauling it out of the water before winter and putting it back in come spring (taking down the mast too!).  I have been out on a sail boat a few times and moving along in silence is an enjoyable experience, as long as I don't have to do the work or pay for it all!

A nice set to see Dave.  203 ft is quite large for a sail driven boat I imagine.
