I am a new owner of an '85 Stevens 47. I bought the boat in SoCal and had it trucked to Seattle. Will sail it to Alaska in July. Our family has had 2 prior sailboats, '85 Kirie 35 & '85 Beneteau First 42. We sail out of Seward in Ressurection Bay, Kenai Fiords and Prince William Sound. I am looking forward to meeting other members.
