Newbie in MA, with new (to me) boat, seeking to learn.

Hi All,

I've been lurking around here for >a year while I learned to sail and searched for a boat.

Now I've just finished purchasing a boat - Yay! - and am hoping to move aboard and start cruising next Fall. I will be single handing with only my dog Darwin, so will be coastal hopping.

My boat is a beautiful 1982 CS36T, meticulously maintained by her PO, who was an airline pilot. It already has solar and wind aux. power.

I know I'll be posting some questions during this time of preparation to other forums here.

'Nuf for now,

M. Roark

Aloha flysci from Celestialsailor and Buster the Jack Russell. Your boat was built in my home country a few towns down from where I was born. Great boat!

Welcome Margo
Congratulations on the new boat.
Post us some pics of her if you get the chance.
It’s always nice to get another lurker out in the open.

Congrats on your new boat! This is a great forum (as I am sure you know by now.)
Would love to see some pics!

I spent many summers sailing and working on a lobster boat in Scituate, MA. (Just south of Boston.) Go Sox!
