Need Advice about sailing in southern New England. .  
Comments The name means "Let's go!" in French.  "The fur" refers to the amount of fur inside the boat from the Maine Coon cats who sail with us.  Eventually, you get used to it. We sail on the Chesapeake Bay and are cruisers.   Once the course is   programmed into the LORAN for the weekend destination, the autopilot is turned on, and we enjoy a civilized breakfast while reading the newspaper and watching the world go by. The wing keel helps us get into gunkholes where the racers can't go, so we can enjoy the quiet of the Eastern Shore.  The tall mast lets us catch the wispy winds of summer, and lots of battery capacity ensures that the cold drinks stay cold.  We had planned to take this boat to France with us, when we retire in 2007, but there are now enormous numbers of EU regulations that make it real pain to register or sell  it there.  So, we will likely keep her here for some time after we retire(07), and do the eastern US and the Caribbean, and then sell her and buy something else (maybe a 350) in Europe.  She will be well equipped when we sell. (Now, on second thought, we may keep her and take her over, but stay in US registration - depends on the stock market...)

How Boat Was Named Escape Velocity - there's the traditional meaning of course, but we've always used it as an expression of that point in life where you've built up the retirement funds to the point where you don't care about earthly things like working for a living and you can sail anything you want. We're nowhere near that point. But velocity is a vector with magnitude and direction. On rethinking things and changing direction we were able to get everything we wanted in a boat that is a bit older and do it while we are young enough to really take advantage of it. Escape Velocity is a state of mind.

Can share info about I think we have worked on everything in or on the boat. 
Need info about We are considering sailing from Seattle to Cabo and then eventually through the Panama Canal. We are very interested in connecting to any one who has done such a trip in the 34'.  We would like to review the upgrades like boards over the port holes and stiffening the bulkhead-hull connection, etc, etc. We've pretty much got the weather window figured out and suggestions of where to stop along the Wash, Oreg, and Calif. coastlines.  We just need lots of input on getting the boat ready
