It grieves me, but Alpha Leonis is for sale. She is berthed in Newport, OR after returning from a trip that included Mexico, Costa Rica, the Galapagos, Hawaii, and Alaska. She is fully equipped for offshore sailing.
Just to close this out - Alpha Leonis was sold. Thank you to all the forum members, especially Bobby and Stuart, who have helped me over the past seven or eight years. This forum is a great resource. Just reading through the posts is very educational. Selling a boat is not always the happiest day in a boat owner's life,.
