New One

Hello fellow sailors. I am new and was told to introduce myself.. We (my husband and I) are recently retired and bought a Fountaine Pijot Lavezzi...40' cat. We have a lot to learn, though we have sailed all our lives. We hope to live aboard come November. Our boat Matou is on the hard now in Virgin Gorda. We are looking to improve our electrical knowledge, small engine and diesel wisdom before we take the plunge. Any leads would be appreciated! We presently live in the Chicago area. Glad to join you all!

Re: New One

Welcome to the forum. Lot's of information here...Even some good information...
