I second this motion.

Congratulations on your new boat! The boat naming game is great one to play with your boys - keeps them interested. To this day our kids 35 & 37 scan the stern of every boat they see looking for their next boat name. I'd suggest starting off by doing everything you can think of to keep her from going down hill - sail covers - leak patrol etc etc etc. & take her out every time you can. Buy a sailing for dummies type book and make learning about the boat a family thing - worked for us.

It would appear you're more than capable of becoming a boat owner! Not meaning to go off the thread here, but as a single mother I too had to do alot of things on my own. I'll never forget the time the muffler fell off my Corolla and I had to wire it up with a coat hanger in order to get it to the mechanic. My boyfriend peeked underneath and dared to say, "I think I would have done that differently." Can you believe he's now my fiance?

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have another DIYer here on the forum. Cleaning each space in the boat will make you familiar in a hurry. Check all your valves to make certain they operate well and if they don't then think about chainging them soon. I don't think you have too many on the Coronado but each one is potential for catastrophe.
Congratulations. I think the Coronado is a well made fine little vessel and you'll get lots of good fun and learning experiences from "Circumstance."
kind regards,

I really like the name "Saint of Circumstance" (for many reasons) but I am concerned that it may be too long or complicated to be easily understood over a crackling radio. Opinions?
Wow.. what a great thing to happen... "Outa De Blue"....
Enjoy yourself hugely..
