Howdy from the NW

Hello All,

Greetings from Portland Oregon. I have been enjoying this forum for a while and thought I should finally do the polite thing and say hello.

I have sailed on the Great Lakes for a few summers, and chartered in the Gulf Islands and San Juans. I have sailed a few days on a 31" Searunner, which has me hooked on trimarans.

I have never owned a boat, but have been searching for a Searunner trimaran and, through the forum, have met some great Searunner owners who have given me some great advice and fun stories.

I leave in a few days to help a friend who just purchased a 43' Landfall sailboat. We are delivering it from NC to Sandusky Ohio, via the Erie Canal. I will post some info on our trip if anyone is interested.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Your delivery sounds like an adventure. I'd like to hear the story as it unfolds.
I'm originally and Oregonian.
regards,

I first saw Searunner trimarans while I was doing my internship in the Panama Canal Zone more than thirty years ago. Those early trimaran designs convinced me that one day I would sail around the world in a multihull. Most of the multihulls back then were constructed by their owners. It was tempting to build one of them myself.

Yes, I know what you mean. I was hooked after a three day sail to Catalina Island on a 31' Searunner

I leave KY tomorrow to go to NC with my friends to get their 43' monohull ready for the trip. I will post pix when we get somewhere!! Anyone have any advice for sailing from Oriental to Sandusky via the Erie canal? I have already read some threads here with some good info
