As you read through the mods we have made to our Mac please keep the following in mind. First this is our first sail boat and we had never sailed until we bought the Kera-Jane in the spring of 2009. We are moving into our late 60's so we are setting the boat up for easy handling on the water and trailer and also for extended cruises of over a month, sometimes not resupplying on the water for over 3 weeks. We anchor almost every night, so good anchoring equipment and shore lines have become a top priority for us.
We are explorers more than sailors. This boat is our Jeep on water combined with the hauling ability and comforts of the Suburban that pulls it down the highway. It is meant to take us about any place on inland and coastal waters in some comfort and hopefully safety. Some of the mods have certainly hurt the sailing performance, but that is OK as we are retired and in no hurry.
With that in mind hopefully some of what you find here will help you or someone to some degree with "your goals and wants" in mind,
Sumner
