Around The World Voyage : Commentary : Leg 4
May 31, 2002
NORDHAVN is now in an area that gave my family and I great misery during our cruise on MALABAR VII in 1971. I brought the MALABAR logbook and the daily diaries of my two sisters and of my first wife with me to read and have been reminiscing about that epic cruise. (ED. NOTE: Coming soon, Dan's musings of NORDHAVN v. MALABAR VII will be posted in their entirety.)
While the basics of seamanship have remained unchanged over the years, so many other things have changed, that it is difficult to remember how primitive it was only 30 years ago. MALABAR was primitive partly because of our tiny budget and lack of money, but mostly because the gear and equipment that we take for granted today simply was not available for yachts at that time.
