John was born and brought up in Bermuda and started sailing as a child, racing locally and offshore before turning to cruising. He has sailed over 100,000 miles, most of it on his McCurdy & Rhodes 56, Morgan's Cloud, including eight ocean races to Bermuda, culminating in winning his class twice in the Newport Bermuda Race. He has skippered a series of voyages in the North Atlantic, the majority of which have been to the high latitudes. John has been helping others go voyaging by sharing his experience for twenty years, first in yachting magazines and, for the last 12 years, as co-editor/publisher of AAC.

    I am trying to deal with David Schwartz at GMT for getting carbon mast repairs after his 12 month warranty expired, but its a real challenge.
    Does anyone have experience dealing with David and trying to get him to stand behind his product?

      Hi Rick,

      Sadly we had no luck with that, as documented in this post. We feel your pain and hope that this situation won’t be as expensive for you as our dealings with GMT were for us.
