I am impressed with this forum and look forward to sharing experiences with others.Sailing brings out the best in all of us.
My sailing experience started 20+ years ago on Lake Washington
near Seattlewhen a friend introduced me to his San Juan
21- I was hooked! Years passed.My job took precedence and I had to move. Further away from sailing waters.
Six years ago I met a fellow soon to become a dear friend, who was adjusting to sailing a "new" Pearson
26. He needed crew and wanted to get more experience with the boat, having just bought it. His old boat was a San Juan
24. We've been sailing togrther ever since.
As for my boat "project" purchased this May:
A 1981 United Sailing Yacht 27' mast-head sloop
built in Arlington, WA. (aka US 27) Brunswick/Bayliners last,best entry in sailboats. These were bought and built for /by Pearson
as their Triton 27.
The estimated time to put her back in the drink is 2 years! Bargains can be passed up, but not this one.TLC and $6500 may do what's needed?! My wife fell in love with her at first site. The other forums
will be getting a lot of input with all the details and pieces/parts and pictures.
Good luck to all- sailing or on the hard!
