Hello from Scappoose, Oregon

I didn't want to say I was "newbie" as I am only a newbie to this forum (and forums in general). My husband and I have lived on boats for over 25 years now and have done complete gut and rebuilds on the 3 boats we've lived on, WHILE we lived on them. We also took 2 years and sailed to and cruised in Mexico. A couple of more years and a few more projects and we're heading there again. We are total do-it-yourselfers. That said, we ALWAYS have things to learn and our latest lady has provided us with a steep learning curve. Our current lady is a 1972 Mariner 32 Ketch and we have been having (mostly) a great time restoring her and learning about her. We have also restored and lived aboard a 1969 Bristol 24 and a 1970 Cheoy Lee Offshore 31. Yep, we like 'em small and sturdy.

We're always looking for advice and fellowship. Looking forward to all that y'all can teach us!

Aloha and welcome to the forum. I love new members that get down to it and get their hands dirty. Real salts of the Earth. Looking forward to the knowledge you will be bringing to the forum...

There are marinas in Scappose and St Helens. St Helens is on the main Columbia river and Scappose is a motor down a channel. Mast clearance and water depth will not be a problem. All brides from the mouth up through Portland either have the clearance you need or open.

Re: Hello from Scappoose, Oregon

Aloha and welcome aboard!
My first bigger boat was a Mariner 35 wood ketch. Loved it. Great sailing boat and had it been fiberglass I'd still have it today.
Although it was a 35 I don't believe the 27 foot waterline is much longer than yours.
kind regards,
