Congratulations on the new boat. I just wish I could decipher your post? I think this is what you wanted?

(I) just wanted to say hello(.)

I finally purchased my boat(.)

(I) had it moved to my house now(,) just to get it just right(,) then back to the water with it.

I hope the boat will give you years of boating pleasure (and sorry to be nitpicky about your post - it honestly didn't make sense to me till I read it a few times)

Some picture of my new ( old ) boat lol
So my first priority is to get the engine in perfect working order and seal up any leaks.
I need to find some new port lights any suggestions ? Also under my compression post in the bilge area it's missing a piece that supports it looks like it rusted away il post pics later anyone had this problem or dealt with it yet?

Re: New here just purchased my sailboat 1979 hunter 30

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Congratulations on the boat. It seems there are a few projects and the most major will be under the compression post.
I'd suggest opening ports if they are not currently.
kind regards,

Re: New here just purchased my sailboat 1979 hunter 30

Looks reasonably well preserved. The co,pression post is a very big issue. Drop the mast and unload the deck as much as possible. Possibly you might fabricate a fiberglass block in place. If it was steel and it rusted then if you use steel it will rust, too.

What engine? How does it run now? Diesels are pretty simple. If there is compression and fuel and air delivered properly they will start. Consider adding a simple mechanical fuel trap to keep water and some particulate matter from even reaching the filters. If you will use the enfine a lot, think avout your filter costs when deciding whether to stay with the current setup or change it.

How you equip your boat depends a lot on where you will use it. Think about how rhe boat WILL be used and dont spend money on stuff you might need for a cruise that might never happen.

Try to hook up with someone at the marina you intend. to use. You. need to try to get some crewing time in. Most places will have beer can races on Wednesday late afternoon or early evening, weather permitting. Usually the bigger boats can use bodies just to hold rhe windward rail down. You will learn a lot just being there, observing, and scrambling to the opposite side when tacking. Not my cup of tea and maybe not yours either but it is an easy introduction to boat handling and it doesnt cost anything.
