hello from san diego

Hey everyone!

My name is Eric, and my girlfriend and I have a Hans Christian 38 (1975) that we've owned for a little over a year. I had a 32 Ericson before that, so this is my first "big boat".

We're in San Diego, spend far too much time and money on the boat, and will be working and saving money for the next few years. We go sailing a bunch, including on my friend's 40' wooden ketch, and my El Torro.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi. The name of our vessel... crazy enough... is Rebel Heart.

Welcome.

Where do you keep the boat in San Diego? There have been many posts on this forum about slip availability in your area.

Aloha Eric,
Welcome aboard!! I spent many years in San Diego just a bit south of Coronado sailing out of Fiddler's Cove. Loved it. You have a beautiful boat in a great sailing area. Aren't El Toro's fun?
Kind Regards,
JohnL

San Diego is really bad for slips; they're expensive as hell, and the ones that are reasonable have multi year waiting lists. Personally I'm at Sun Harbor in Point Loma, and although it's not the cheapest, it's also not the most expensive, and it's a very nice area with good services.

I live in town (my girlfriend and I have full time jobs a few blocks from our apartment), but there are a lot of liveaboards in our marina.

If anyone needs advice on places to anchor, I'd be glad to help. There's also some little known facts that you can use (like the A-9 anchorage has guest slips; you just need to remind SD Mooring Co about that fact), that might not be obvious when you're just calling around.

Fiddler's Cove is a great area. Viva San Diego!

Thumbs up Welcome aboard

Another X-Sandy Eggo liveaboard here.

I was over in Mission Bay at the foot of the Islandia hotel back in the early 80's. It was great while it lasted. We had pool, sauna and shower rights. Along with discounts at the restraunt over looking the marina.

I'm sure you'll enjoy the forum. Them HC's are beautiful boats............._/)

Greetings Rebel Heart... Good boat name.

Things have changed a lot since I lived around san diego many years ago. It is good to hear that there are still liveaboard marinas in the bay, I know that some harbours in the US no longer allow.

Your boat is known for being blue water capable. I have seen many in OZ on their way around, hope you make it across the pacific or where ever you want to go.

Cheers
