I'm currently on the hard
near Reedville, VA with "Karma" my 1981 O'Day 34. She'd been sittin' for about 2 yrs before I purchased her with plans to get her bottom wet post-hurricane season. Work has gotten in the way as has several suprises (i.e.; needed to pull the pedestal
to replace a rotten backing board under the cockpit
Previously, I owned a Coronado 28 with an outboard
. Karma has a 24 HP diesel
which is a new type of engine
for me to deal with. I've replaced the fuel tank
as the original (aluminum) developed a several pin-holes.
So, I'll be lurking around looking for diesel
info as well as pretty much everything else.
I'm still very excited about sailing and Karma, she has all the systems that I think I'll need for a while plus the space to add more such as A/C, refridge, etc. Yeah, I know "space" is relative and like closets will fill up quickly.
At this time my plan it to cruise
the Chesapeake, then make a loop or two around the Eastern Shore, then head
south. That ought to keep me busy for a few years.
