 Mithril was designed and built to be a
 
 strong  and safe world voyaging boat
 
 not as one to sit and look pretty in a
 
 marina. She has proved to be seakindly
 
 in the worst weather the Roaring
 
 Forties could throw at us as well as
 
 performing well in the lighter winds of
 
 the tradewind belts. As you would
  
 expect from a boat that is lived on full 
 
 time Mithril has all the comforts of home
 
 from microwave oven and freezer to
 
 stereo music system and extensive
 
 library.
