Owner's Comments
The LAZY W has traveled over 6,000 miles in the last 15 months so she's more than ready for sea and this has been well-proven during our voyaging! Throughout her cruise of the Great Lakes, the Erie Canal and the Eastern Seaboard from Maine to Florida, the LAZY W has been carefully maintained on an almost daily basis. She has never broken down or lost control even in a bad storm we encountered offshore. Her cruising speed is 8.3 knots at 1800 RPM and she got 2 nautical miles per gallon consistently. Her shallow draft (3'6") and seaworthiness made her go where and when other boats could not, and her stately Monk and Ocean Alexander pedigrees was admired by all. The Owner has happily achieved his dream of cruising the eastern US and is moving on to other items on his bucket-list.
