I'm Phil. I just purchased a Bristol 29.9 in Maryland
and am starting in on a refit
with hopes to sail the Chesapeake and beyond starting later this winter. I've been sailing on and off for fifteen years or so but this is my first cruising boat. I've got my work cut out for me: replacing through-hulls, hoses, adding electronics
, etc, but overall the boat is in structurally good shape with a good working Yanmar
and I'm excited to learn my way through all the systems.
I've been reading Cruiser's Forum for months and eager to be a part of the community. I'll take all the advice I can get! Nice to meet you all!
