    “Expressions” hull #4 Seward/Anchorage, Alaska
    Owners Mark and Karen Williams
    sail # 69750
    Berthed in Seward Alaska and sailed in all the north gulf coast waters of Alaska
    Original owner hence only one name
    Raced for one year in Seattle area and then in Alaska for about 15 years very successful club race history now mostly cruise
    Raised a family of 6 kids cruising with it in Alaska with many great experiences. Now its our empty nest boat.
    Engine replaced 12 years ago, topsides hull Imron painted 10 years ago
    Probably only 34 with an electric windlass due to deep anchorages in Alaska
    Anchor locker is not a functional design for Alaska with the large anchor and long rode and the wood has broken down on head wall and will be replaced this summer. Some water migration around a few fitting on deck around companion way garage.
    Still has aged gracefully for all its use and sails very well.

      Hi Mark & Karen,

      Welcome aboard and thanks for the quick reply!
      Cruising Alaska with 6 kids on an E34? I bet your kids got to be pretty good sailors!
      The previous owners of my boat, Wailana glassed in the anchor locker amidships. I now haul out the anchor (a fortress) and chain in a bag and deploy it by hand so I can appreciate a windlass!
      They are great boats. How is your topside paint holding up? Are there two E34s in Anchorage?
