Wow! It's been almost two years since I posted last. Thanks for the welcomes!
My wife rlp164 and I have now been in Cali for 16 months . I've completed ASA
101, 103, 104, 105, nighttime navigation
and several docking classes
in both Redondo harbor and Marina del Rey. We've been chartering mostly Catalina
34s and 36s and Hunter
41 for two summers and we finally pulled the trigger and made an offer on a Polaris 43 (unauthorized Bob Perry design- SORRY BOB! valiant 40 hull
but flush deck). It's in great shape. Survey
and sea trial this week. I've fallen I love with Twin Harbors cove on Catalina
and plan to spend many weekends there this summer as we extend our experience out of the Sourh Bay.
