Michael, who probably due to lack of knowledge of the work involved with a forum, asked me to moderate the 455 forum. I think it is appropriate to introduce myself!
Me and my wife Lis-Marie lives in Sollentuna, a suburb just north of Stockholm. We bought our Dufour 455 last summer (2007) and named her S/Y Amortina af Stockholm. This is our forth sailboat and the largest after 30, 36 and 40 feet since 1988. I have recently retired from my employment and now run my own little company, Toppsegel Charter, providing charter and yacht master services. During season we sail in the Baltic Sea among the thousand islands of our archipelago. After our season, when the boat is on shore, we try to cruise elsewhere, like the Caribbean, Croatia and Greece where we rent bareboat.
As the boat is my favourite hobby I like to evolve the boat towards better functionality and comfort. I will share with you my projects and thoughts and am very interested to hear about your smart solutions.
