Hello from Nova Scotia, Canada

Hi folks, I've been lurking for a while, figured it was time to join and participate in the discussion.
I'm currently doing a pretty major (for me) refit on a 1952 carvel sailboat, similar in design to a thunderbird, the sail plan is identical but the real thunderbird is a plywood hull with hard chines. Mine has a full length cast iron keel and a steel drop keel.
It has a blue jacket twin inboard (gasoline).
I am hoping to have the boat in the water by the summer of 2018.
Im not a sailor (yet) in fact just this past summer was my first ride on a sailboat up near kingston Ontario.
There's lots to tell but for now that's enough about me.
Oh ya the boat is called The White Witch and I think she's beautiful!

Ahoy and welcome to the forum from a fellow Canuck. A good book to pass by the cold winters there is "The boat who wouldn't float by Farley Mowat.

Yes I read that book quite a few years ago, great entertainment. I hope one day to spend some summer days in the many sheltered bays of Newfoundland and of course I know from the book about the dangers of opening more than one rum bottle at a time "once opened it must be finished or it might go bad" 😊
