MessageReally enjoy your site.Thank you for taking the time to keep it up.We are new to sailing (2nd year inland lakes)and planning our first coastal/keys trip in mid January.
Our Lancer is much smaller (1977 25)but we enjoy sailing this boat (our 2nd).
Maybe we will be in your area,if so we will keep an eye out. Our boat isn't named yet.
Thanks again... Bob and Dawn

MessageHi Guys,

You don't know me, but I've visited your website a number of times, specifically when I was considering purchasing and moving aboard a 36' Lancer. I did just that, last August, and have successfully lived through my first winter aboard. Seeing your website and how creatively you've used your space, really made the notion much easier for me. You two have done a terrific job of making the most of a boat that admittedly, is very liveable to begin with, but I'd have to say you've out-done yourselves.

The biggest challenges I faced (living in Vancouver, British Columbia) were somewhat the opposite to your challenges. I needed to keep the boat warm and dry in a very wet climate. When you heat a boat that sits on cold water, of course it sweats, so I installed an enormous household dehumidifier that keeps the humidity at a very comfortable level, along with an oil-filled electric heater, and a small box fan heater to circulate the air on board.

By the way, you are right - these are slippery boats - I had mine going 8 knots in a nice strong breeze last summer in the Canadian Gulf Islands on the Genoa alone...

Thank you both for the inspiration to go ahead and make a rewarding lifestyle choice... My next step may just be to try and make a living teaching sailing aboard my Lancer!

All the best, and many thanks,

Jeremy Gow

MessageHi Charmaine and Bill,

I wanted to thank you! We just closed a deal to purchase a 1983 Lancer 36 and your web site proved invaluable in helping us make that decision. Thank you for all the great info and for sharing photos of your beautiful boat and your life living aboard it. We are looking so forward to making "Never Say Never" our own!

I have attached our "before" photos

Cheers! Leanne and Pete
