Luma Marie is on the cradle for the winter. It is an S2 11.0A sailboat that I
bought in the Spring 2007. I have finished the third sailing season with her
and am getting to know her quite well especially after this summer when I
overhauled the Volvo engine MD17C (insitu) I had to cut a hatch in the cockpit floor in order to get the heads off. I also overhauled the Vdrive. I have made a lot of improvements on the boat including installing a windlass, new companionway doors so I wouldn't have to remove hatch boards. New chartplotter, lifelines, battery monitor, head, sails and so on.
I have sailed it extensively on Lake Michigan and look forward to getting to the ocean with her next Spring. The trips I took on Lake Michigan were pretty much between Chicago and Milwaukee although I had one trip across the Lake from Whitehall, MI. where I bought the boat.
