Old & New

Hello all,
Purchased an Olson 30, hull #220, out of Bainbridge Island, Wa., about 4 years ago and have been sailing out of the West Mooring basin in Astoria, Oregon (Columbia River, Graveyard of the Pacific). What a wonderful vessel and sailing venue.
Currently have it pulled and in my driveway for a complete refit. Lots of through holes that need core work and a soft foredeck. Would like to configure for singlehanded sailing & cruising/camping in NW waters.
Hull is perfect and the rudder needs some leading edge work.
I look forward to sharing this wonderful experience with all who are interested.

Arch Cape Rand,

Welcome aboard CF!

It sounds as if you're doing great with your boat. I hope the deck job goes smoothly and that you caught it before it spread.

Good luck with the re-fit.
