Illusion IV

August 25, 2008

ILLUSION IV is now in Nova Scotia where we have been cruising her after a trip up the east coast stopping in Brunswick GA:Newport RI, Nantucket MA and various ports and anchorages in Maine. I just wanted to report back to you that I have never had a new boat that has had absolutely a minimum of “start up issue” and has handled as well as ILLUSION. All of you at Outer Reef should be proud of your product and I just wanted to thank you for producing such a truly excellent yacht. She is a joy to handle both underway, docking and maneuvering in some very tight quarters. In addition she is beautiful to look at and a very seaworthy vessel. Coming from a die hard sailor, these compliments are sincere and based on many years of cruising in vessels I liked. In all the sea conditions we have experience to date, she has tracked well and been extremely stable. Due to the current high price of fuel, I was pleased with the fuel burn at 1100 RPMs and averaged approximately 5.5 GPH on each engine while cruising at an average speed of 9 knots (and this has been with less the a clean bottom since she sat in Georgia for about a month and a half before starting north). Everyone who has been aboard speaks nothing but rave reviews and she attracts many admirers both at dock and at anchor. I just wanted to give you a short report on how things were going and to thank you - Jeff S
