Hello from Bristol 27 Sailor on Lake Michigan

Hello fellow electronic sailors!

We bought a Bristol 27 a few years ago with the intention of 'cruising' Lake Michigan. We had a Catalina 22 on Lake Mendota (a smaller lake in Madison, WI), and wanted to sail some bigger waters. So, we got a bigger boat. However, the B27 has required a fair amount of attention. So, we have been working on the boat for a few years, while day sailing around Milwaukee. Looking forward to doing some weekends and longer soon.
