New to Cruisers

My husband and I are the proud owners of a 37' Pacific Seacraft, great upgrade from our 26' Hunter.

Re: New to Cruisers

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Yes, quite a step up. Learning curve can get a bit steep with more systems to experiment with.
I went from a fiberglass 22 to a wood 35 ketch many years ago and was a bit overwhelmed for awhile. Just sitting aboard and looking around at all the things I didn't know much about was awe inspiring.
kind regards,

Re: New to Cruisers

Welcome, as former sailors, we look forward to your wisdom.
My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
