Hi from Scott and Kim - NoCal

My wife and I find ourselves at the point that we have time for some extended cruising and are in the sell down mode, mainly our airplane, to finance a cruising sailboat. A Pearson 365 is at the top of our short list, though a Mariner 39 & 36 look good as well as a Islander 36. I have learned much from the forms on this sight and for that I want to say thank you. I was born into a boating family and my Bride of 30 years had no trouble jumping right in as at 19 we bought our first sailboat and much to her parents dismay, off we went on five day trips to the Channel Islands off of California. We look forward to extended trips to Mexico and beyond in the near future. Happy Sailing, Scott and Kim

Welcome,
We are glad to have you and your wife here. I sailed on a Pearson 365 throughout some of the great lakes and loved her. She is a heavy girl, built tough. I hope that you will continue to update the forum as your plans develop.
Spencer

Yes Factor we are. Our car has both front and rearsteer. I have used rearsteer on 4x4 forums for years and just to save brain power I though it would work here as well. Sailboats are rearsteer as well aren't they?
