Greetings from Puget Sound

Hello I'm kinda new here. I've been quietly enjoying the friendly exchanges between members and noticed the same easy comradery that is encountered on the docks and in small anchorages. I have grown old with my Iwin motorsailer and loved every minute, even the scary ones. I'm presently converting to hydraulic steering and auto pilot and will probably ask for advice before the project is complete because marine mechanics and parts don't exist on our little island. I look forward to reading the forum every day. Jesse

Welcome aboard!

From another one from the Puget Sound.

Check out these threads for hyd. steering discussions.

steering

Which is more reliable: electric or hydraulic?

A little "Shameless self promotion" on my part.

Aloha Jesse,
Welcome aboard!! Good to have you here. Hope the forum can answer some questions for you.
I'll be up in PNW for the wooden boat festival and to enjoy some of your grand fall weather.
Toured Whidbey the last time we were there. Really big island!
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Hi John L, George, Lancerbye and Randy

Thank you for the welcome aboard and the interest in my project. It is in the organizing stage aboard a 32.5 center cockpit Irwin. If I can do half the job that delmarrey did I will be pleased as punch. Jesse
