Hi everyone .It has been a long time since I have posted anything. Not much of a forum type I'm sorry .But it sure would be nice to let you all know that I transformed my beloved Twister called Afridi into a cruising boat with a windvane, solar panels and a good lithium battery to be fully independent from shore. I've sold all I owned and set off chasing the sunset . All single handed. I started my voyage 2.5 weeks ago and sailed from Holland to northern Spain in 1.5 week with a short stop at lands end . I have made a short video of the biscay crossing for friends and family, but will be nice to share onto here as well. I do apologise for the Dutch language in advance. Hope you all enjoy it.
Yes I absolutely love the way the Twister handles everything. Words can not describe how much I love my boat. At the moment I'm safely anchored in a beautiful and protected bay near the small village of Ferrol. With a oversized mantus anchor so should be fine. Fits the bowroller very nice too. As long as you lash it down very tight when going out at sea.
I will definitely post some more nice things when I get the chance 😃
