At this juncture Caroline and I are in Juneau Alaska, having cruised a bit of South East this summer. I am having some more work done on Caroline in mid October. We will be adding a bulb to the underwater shape of the bow in order to help with reducing the up and down motion, or hobby-horsing, in a heavy head sea. The side benefit from this addition is a bit more realized waterline and hence increased speed and efficiency. I plan to winter this year in Juneau and spot cruise as weather permits. In spring 2022 we will begin heading West toward the Aleutians.
