Please welcome Jerry Hok as the new owner of DAYBREAK. Judy and I would like to express our appreciation of the support and comaraderie we have enjoyed during our brief association with this superb group.

After over thirty years as cruising sailors, twenty of those years living aboard in the Caribbean, we have made a major change in our life style. Can you believe, we have bought a house. An immovable, landbound structure. Of course, we are already looking at other boats as we can not imagine life without a boat, but it will be a much more modest vessel and we have agreed that there will be no more major ocean passages, unless you count the New Jersey coast as a major ocean passage.

Of the three Caribbean boats we have owned, (Bristol 35.5, 1983-1989 (destroyed in Hugo); Crealock 37, 1990-2001; Allied Seawind II, 2001-2005, the DAYBREAK has been a delight. We have always espoused the belief that one should go to sea in the smallest boat that one is comfortable with, and DAYBREAK certainly met that criterion. It doesn't detract from one's pride of ownership to have folks from the Connecticut River to Trinidad express their admiration of the lines our fine little ketch.

Jerry is delighted with his purchase and we have no doubt that he will be a welcome member of the group.

Fair winds and following seas,

Gil and Judy Steinfort, ex-DAYBREAK

    Aboard S/V DAYBREAK
    Hollywood, Florida
    7 December 2001

    Dear Mr. Hering,

    I got your name and address from the website - we are the new owners of DAYBREAK, Allied Seawind II, hull #122. (We did not change the name.)

    DAYBREAK's documented home port is St. Croix, U. S. Virgin Islands, where we have lived on a boat since 1984. We sailed our previous boat from the Virgin Islands to Annapolis in April and sold it. We bought DAYBREAK in May and will spend the winter here in Florida, a big change for us, before sailing back to the Virgin Islands in the spring.

    We have logged over 2200 miles, mostly under power due to light air in the Chesapeake and restricted navigation in the ICW. We did encounter some brisk sailing of the coasts of New Jersey and Florida and were pleased with DAYBREAK's performance. We are also very pleased with the interior accommodations.

    We would like to have a line drawing and/or sail plan drawing if one is available. We would also like to know if there are any tips on disassembly and re-bedding of the bronze ports and if anyone has found a swim/boarding ladder that can be mounted on the transom without interfering with the mizzen sheet.

    Yours truly,

    Gil and Judy Steinfort
