Greetings from Portland , Oregon

Hi All,
Although I've chartered and raced small boats for years, I am finally making the steps to become a liveaboard. I currently have a little 22' Catalina that I sail on the Columbia River. I'm looking at boats 35-38 ft. While searching for information on a HR Rasmus 35 that I'm considering I found a wonderful thread that convinced me this is a knowledgable group that I just have to follow if I'm going to avoid a major faux pas. Thanks for the help you've already given me and for tolerating my newbie questions soon to come.

Welcome Aboard CF! Lots of good people here to answer questions.

They'll even tell you which boat to buy, sometimes without being asked!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. My first boat was a Catalina 22 with a fin keel. Great little boat and a good teacher.
kind regards,
