Another Group Newbie Signs-In

Here I am! Michael - 56 yo. Currently boatless, looking at cruising sailboats in the 27 - 35 foot range. Rawson 30's are calling to me. My sailing skills are in the low end of intermediate (or high end of beginner). New scuba driver.

Glad to have found this community!

Aloha Michael,
Welcome aboard!! Good to have you here. The Rawson is a good solid boat. A bit heavy for racing but a darn good cruising liveaboard for her size. I sailed one up and down the leeward side of Oahu in the very early 80s.
Kind Regards,

Aloha Michael...Rawson is a great boat. Many have crossed the big pond.
