Cheers from Eleanor Rigby

Hello All,
Happy New Year. We are in Stuart Florida at the Southpoint Anchorage working on our 1984 Vagabond V42. She was previously owned and maintained by an idiot. Most of the systems on board need to be replaced so I'll be using this forum often. Its great to finally have the boat we always wanted, she just in need a lot of TLC right now. Cheers, John & Ruth, s/v Eleanor Rigby

John and Ruth,

As long as you have so much work to do I hope you can enjoy the forum. Post your questions as they come up and we usually have some one that did it wrong and learned to did it right. No need for you to do that too.

Happy New Year!

John and Ruth,

I just left that anchorage. Stuart is one of my favorite stops. A lovely town. Good luck with your projects. Hope to run across you cruising in the near future.
