Hello, I am the new owner of a Searunner
37 formerly known as Stickwitch, located in Hawaii
. Since i bought this boat with the proceeds of a job i had
in the Ivanpah Valley in the California
Mojave Desert, Ivanpah is the new name of the vessel. i never met the previous owner as he left the boat for the hospital and never returned so there is a lot to be done to prepare for my eventual trip southwesterly.
i have lived on a Searunner
40 for 6 weeks in the Caribbean
a number of decades ago and loved it and lived on other boats 6 months a year for 4 years up and down the chain so i have some cruising experience but little true blue water
i mostly learned to sail on a 25 footer cruising the inside passages of SE Alaska
a few weeks at a time when i lived in Alaska
. more recently i have sailed my 5o year old wooden sloop
on Lake Superior
I expect to need plenty of advice over the coming months. i will probably be installing Li batteries because of posts i have read already.
looking forward to hearing from you and then meeting some along the way. Don
