Fun that you enjoy it! The Göta Kanal is really a experience to any boater, aka "The Divorce Ditch" :lol:
Love your old Connie; a beauty!!!

:P Your'e thinking of gas consumption... I'm actually cruising about 8 knots at 2,5 L/NM, think that is quite fair with this a big boat and compared to the actual monetary investment done, so far, I still have som dough left to buy gas for a couple of summers.... 8)
The fine thing is,I don't have any mortages to pay for this boat... :wink:

Nice work Dagg! Great thing about the old wooden cruisers is you can buy them relatively cheap and if you pick away at the repairs yourself and pay as you go, you have a lot of boat for the money. I love working on my cruiser. That's part of the fun. Have a great Season. Happy Boating!

Very well... seems like I lost the naming discussion this time. Thought of "Lucky Lucy" since I saved her from a quite certain destiny as being cut up, but my wife decided we continue the trdition from our earlrier boat and so it's going to be CillaGreta III...
WQe are of course going to have a official naming ceremony, to adress Poseidon and here in the Baltic sea, also Ran and Aegir.
