Congrats!

Whoever did all the canvas work did a stellar job!

So cool, look forward to seeing you out on the Columbia. Living on your sailboat is the best place to live (most of the time). One of my favorite yacht listings with Passion Yachts were I happen to work one day a week.
Congratulations,
Greg

It's a beautiful boat. Congratulations! Even that peach/pink tone seems to work, thanks to the great canvas appointments. Looks like you got a lot for the money.

Just had the survey today!

Very little blistering, and the blisters that are there are very small (less than a dime). I am going to get a bottom paint done, the yard is giving me a $5/ft discount too.

Other than that, there were just a few recommendations and no real problems!

Congatulations! Very nice looking boat... speaks volumes about a concientious previous owner. I like the bunk/pilot berth idea though I wouldn't leave home w/o a good sturdy lee-cloth for it...
Now don't let the keel grow to the bottom. Develop a routine that keeps her squared away for quick sailing trips. Please, no plants on the fore-deck! ;~>

Well done mate, boats in the USA are so cheap, in aussie they would be looking for 50K for this yacht! It looks like it has been "loved".
Good luck with it all.

I wouldn't change the curtains at all.

When visitors arrive unexpectantly they will look at those instead of the unwashed dishes.

Congratulations on the new boat!

My only recommendation is to NOT do too much work! Let things go for a few months because some things that look like they need changing / fixing / renewing etc don't! You can spend $25k in the first 12 months. Or wait for a year and then you will REALLY know what needs money spent on it!

All the best

Mark

Thanks for all the replies! Everyone around me is trying to fill us with horror stories and all the many different ways that we could die while boating...

My favorite being from my stepdad today, he told me that I needed radar while on the river so I could watch out for passing barges, because the wake from the passing barge will "flip my ass over"... I admit that I am a novice, but that is complete BS!

Anyhow, we're well into our second week and we are all loving it!

A very good looking boat!! We had a Cal 9.2 when we first became liveaboards, and it wasn't near as roomy looking as yours!! Congrats, and welcome to the liveaboard club!! It's pretty awesome!
