Allan Robinson, Kwajalein, MHL asks:
I am so pleased to be following your journey, which I recently
discovered on the Nordhavn site. I have always dreamed of a N62, but
after reading your accounts see a N46 as a very viable option for our
dreams... Our home port is Anacortes, WA, and our hope is to one day sell
all and head for Alaska first, and then for parts unknown. Your thoughts
and experiences are truly firing my imagination, and I can't thank you
enough for your story.
Scott Flanders from Egret responds:
Allan, thank you for the kind words. It is our turn to pass on
inspiration as others did in whose wakes Egret is following.
It took a few minutes to determine where Kwajalein is. With National
Geographic Atlas of the World's help and a dim memory of the location we
found you in the Marshall's. At first we figured you to be a tuna
fisherman with a home base of Anacortes but by supplying a zip code you
must be military. ??
An N62 is a wonderful boat. We spent a few weeks aboard one as well as
offshore. The long bow shouldering aside seawater is inspiring. A 62
throttled back, according to friends aboard N62 Grey Pearl, has a range of
over 5000 miles. Wow!! Something we would like to have for sure. By the
same token Egret has been a wonderful home for us. The 62 carries crew
better, a 46 is a simpler boat. There is no right or wrong choice.
Whatever fits your lifestyle is best for you. Both will take you anywhere
in the world you want to go comfortably and safely.
One of Egret's numerous cruising options have her in the Marshall's on her
roundabout way to Alaska. Yaneverno. Ciao.
