Seattle sailor, no network, lots of projects!

Hi everyone!

I posted here before about engine issues and am happy to report I am the owner of a new 20HP inboard. I won稚 name the manufacturer to avoid casting the thread into an anti-Volvo bashthread void (oops!).

I have a 1979 Cal-31 and love it! My issue is I知 largely self taught in sailing and completely lost in maintenance. To help preserve my boat, I am asking if there are any seattle based sailors who would help me prioritize projects and help me understand what I can take on myself and which should be left to professionals. I want to learn as much as possible and have been doing dives into my quickly growing library of maintenance books (thank you Don Casey!).

Beers or the like on me!

Re: Seattle sailor, no network, lots of projects!

Welcome to the forum!

Where are you located in Seattle? Are you a liveaboard? Where is your boat? I am by NO means an expert, take everything I say with a grain of salt, but I love boats and have been around them for a while. I'd be happy to go through a list with you to possibly give you an idea of what should be prioritized and what can wait.

I live onboard my boat over on Bainbridge, but work in downtown(Russell Investments Building). Be more than happy to meet and chat.

Feel free to PM me.

I liveaboard on Lake Union. I also used to own a 1970 Cal-25 so I’m familiar with the make. I’m no expert either but I’m always happy to lend a hand if you are close by!
