Lurker Buys a Boat

Have been lurking and learning here for a few months leading up the purchase of a new (to me) boat. Want to say "thanks" for all of the knowledge I have gained from everyone on this site. The new boat is a 1978 Crown 34 that is going to need some love to bring her back to her former glory, but all of the basics are there and are in good shape.

Am looking forward to being able to spend some time, and the odd dollar, on her. Like they say, " The two happiest days in a boat owners life.......". So I think I will just enjoy the "new boat afterglow" for the short time it exists.
Cheers.

Hey there, I'm also on the BC west coast and own a Crown 34. I'm interested in chatting with you. Drop me a private note if you like to connect.

Cheers,
David
