Greetings From NYC

Hi, I'm Jeff. I'm from Texas, but I live in Manhattan. My friend has just acquired a 60' catamaran and has asked me to help him refit and get it ready to sail from Brooklyn to Ft. Lauderdale, and then on to Belize.
So I thought I would say hello to all of you....

We have a great multi hull group here.
Feel free to post pics, 60 ft cat sounds pretty darn beautiful.

Hi everyone. I haven't posted in awhile. I just arrived back in NY from TX. I stopped in the Smoky Mountains on the way back, and then drove the whole Blue Ridge Parkway all the way to the Shenandoah National park. Then I drove Skyline drive all the way through that park.
Anyways, the boat is named Catbalu. It was a charter in the BVI's for awhile. It's been sitting in Brooklyn for a couple of years. So we're getting it back in running order.
I'll post up some pics this weekend....

Hello Texas Jeffe,
I'm in NYC also at Lincoln Harbor. My boat is undergoing engine "maintenance" so not sailing much for now. Let me know if you guys need a hand.
Bruce
