Andrew sailed Tondelayo from Ventura USA to Scarborough Qld Australia over three years.
He travelled through Mexico, The Galapagos, Marquesas, French Polynesia,Tonga and Fiji.
Read Andrews "Archived Adventures" (reproduced via an archived web site that I found) to enjoy the entire journey.
Andrew advised me of the following history;
She had original sails, and engine, which are what I used on my travels, so I'm pretty sure that she had not seen much use beyond the local Channel Islands, about 15nm away. There were very few modifications to the boat, it was pretty much stock. The only exception I can think of is the big bow platform. The broker said the prior owner was an aircraft mechanic from the midwest US, that would stay on the boat when in LA. He passed away, and I bought the boat from his widow.
