Just bought a woody...

Hello sailors, I've been around this board for a while but just bought an old classic woody... 1957 Farallon Clipper... and am excited to tap into all of your knowledge as I go about making some upgrades and (I hope) getting her in shape to do some classic races around the San Francisco Bay area. Look forward to talking to all of you.
