The Loop is on our bucket list. I have been a lurker on the AGLCA site for years, but have only recently discovered Cap'n John's site. I found it to be a lot more "educational" about doing the loop, instead of just reading about someone's trip (which I find more entertaining than educational). I really think when it comes our time we'll probably sell our trawler (unless we've gotten a displacement hulled one) and buy the most comfortable motorsailer/pilothouse we can afford and pull the mast off or rig up a paravane system on a very short mast. If we do this I want to put a flybridge on it though, I have become spoiled by the difference of perspective the height gives while travelling.
