Hi All --
Just joined the board today. I own Betty Lou, a 1979 deep fin keel
Tartan 37, moored in St. Helens, Oregon
on the Columbia
River. I am the second owner, having purchased the boat three years ago. She is well found, and the PO kept her in immaculate condition.
I've had Betty Lou off shore for two passages up and down the Washington
coast. The last trip was to Barkley Sound on the West coast
of Vancouver Island. Plans are to go North as often as possible, with a circumnavigation
of Vancouver Island, a visit to the Queen Charlottes, and extended cruising
in SE Alaska
ahead of us.
Currently reworking a lot of systems, have rewired the AC, replaced the fresh water plumbing
, added a computer based nav system, and am planning to add a diesel
furnace. Of course the list goes on and on... new dodger
, updated electronics
, etc etc etc.
