What struck me the most was the love all the crew displayed for us, the boat and each other. All of you had an aura of joy surrounding you. I love the boat. You’ve done an amazing job of putting everything together and maintaining the Maple Leaf. It was a grand adventure for me seeing how everything works, from setting the sails, catching prawns, and determining where to anchor. Kevin, you did a fantastic job of knowing what lay ahead. The humour between you and Paul was so enjoyable. Lila, amazing food preparation in a tiny kitchen! Wonderfulchef. Fiona is a truly amazing naturalist. We learned so much. I will highly recommend this trip to others.
