Voyage of Egret Forums

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.
