Saying Hi from Maine .... Noob

Good Morning ( here anyway)
Just want to say hi and a quick introduction. This is our first summer sailing the Maine coast in our "new" 1981 35 foot Pearson sloop , Mackinac. We are so pleased with the boat .... EVERY surprise she has handed us has been a GOOD surprise ....
We plan to do some long term cruising within the next two years ... Have to get the boat ready and to make sure "on shore" commitments are all attended to.
Sea you n the seas
Bill and Jean

Welcome Maine bill, We have missed the Maine Coast this summer by remaining in Florida, but we'll be back next year. Keep us posted of your adventures!
