RichW Arrives with 1977 Endeavour 32

I've been sailing on the Hudson River NY for the last 10 years. Three years ago I decided to exchange my J27 for a cruiser. I found a 1977 Endeavour 32 and have done a little cruising and a lot of renovation and repairs. That's OK because I wanted an old boat to learn how to fix various things. I've worked a good deal on the old Yanmar 2QM20 engine, thru-hulls, fiberglass, the head and standing rig. Now it's almost ready for some trips! I've got some questions and hope to get some hard advice.

Welcome to the forum Rich.
Sounds like your work on the boat has paid off.
Send some pictures if you get a chance.

E32?me Too

Rich---Sounds gooood. I grew up in Nyack, sailed outa NBC for 20 years in the Thistle Class, moved to Maine recently, and bought a 79 E32. She's still on the hard up in Blue hill. I hope to sail her up the Hudson to visit some old haunts someday. What say ye to a rendezvous sometime? at least let's compare notes. I got a good deal on this boat and she seems very well built, ie--a veritable tank--and like you, I wanted a boat I wasn't going to be afraid to bang up and bang on a little. Mine has an MGM30, good sails, nice dodger, and needs a good cleaning. Can't wait to sail her back to my mooring come spring. Keep in touch!

There is another E32 up in ME: Endeavour 32
He has done some interesting upgrades on his Endeavor that bear looking into.
We keep a Tartan 27' at NBC now. Small world.
RichW, where are you keeping your E32?
