Hello form Curacao/ Caribbean

Hi....I just joined the forum and look forward to furthering my education/technical issues on the many facets of boat maintenance/problem solving.I am relatively new to cruising...6 month a year for the past 4 years.
We purchased 'Ideal 1' in Mexico. She is a 43 foot Hans Christian, Christina, built in Thailand 2000 and the first boat Isabelle and I have owned. The boat came with all the bells and whistles....and one by one I am learning how to trouble shoot and maintain the boat...Needless to say I need help.
Bye for now.
D'Arcy

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you posting here.
Troubleshooting bells and whistles is a bit tough but easier than my rebuilding I'll bet.
kind regards,
