Years ago, how many?
Once we had the idea of the boat, yes, this was in the plan.
(1/2) 1. What , where did we want to go?
2. What does it take to do that?
3. How can I afford to do that?
4. How can I do it safely, no matter what?
(1/2) 5. All those answers led me to the Kadey Krogen 42.
A boat that for me made the right compromises. E.g. The large salon windows, great 99% of time
$1000 of 1/2" Lexan solved that vulnerability
Turns out more peace of mind than anything else, JK designed a boat that doesn't let waves hit any Windows
In all the storms and other admittedly stupid stuff I ventured into, my Lexan has never been tested.
Bef i knew what I know now, 3 yrs ago on LI Sound
I was powering into large, steep seas. Sick as hell, I just wanted to end the misery.
The bow would dive into the trough, anchor almost touching water
A tremendous bow wave would go flying over the top of the fly bridge, leaving just some spray on the ph windows
(1/2) This trip we've had to stop 3x dead on water. 1st for oil check only a few min, but other 2 times for 20+ min for steering hose
In 15' seas, not uw, she bobs.
(1/2) I'll post the video of me in the laz, while Micah watches these big ass waves approaching and then disappearing under us
(1/2) He was a bit scared, while I was bemused, content that I had the replacement hose handy and 80. water http://dlor.me/BDG3ZHR
