Grand Banks "sailboat" link

Unless I'm imagining things, somebody on this forum recently (yesterday I think) posted a link to a cruising blog by people who'd put a couple of masts on a GB36 woody and sailed it from Seattle to Key Largo via the canal.* Anybody remember this and have the link?* I have been searching the forum with no luck.

Here's a photo that was with the blog----

RE: Grand Banks "sailboat" link

There is a 58 Roughwater*Trawler down in Panama*they added sails to.* the sails where added to increase the range as they where planning on crossing the Pacific.* fish stabilizers were also added to help stabilize with the sails.

I have mentioned a couple of time about adding sails to trawlers, even talked to a couple of riggers.* 25+ grand to added sails.
