Sweet Maureen - introduction

As a new user to the forum I just wanted to introduce myself. I recently purchased a 1998 Hylas '46 and I am just incredibly in love with the boat!!

Her original name is Sweet Water but I decided to change her to "Sweet Maureen" to honor both the original name and my deceased mother.

The boat is currently in Rhode Island but will live on the Magothy River in Maryland when I am not out cruising.

I've been searching for a Hylas users' forum and would appreciate any pointers to such groups as well.

I have done a great deal of cruising mostly on a '48 Tayana that belonged to my friend but finally decided to take the plunge into blue water boat ownership and I can safely say that "BOAT" really does stand for "Break Out Another Thousand!"

I have been incredibly impressed with the quality and caliber of professionalism I have seen near New Port Rhode Island. In particular I can personally recommend

* New England Yacht Rigging

AND most particularly Kyle Medina of Kyleboatworks - Kyle is an excellent all around boat person who can do everything to upgrade/install a new chart plotter to 12v battery replacement to new HVAC plumbing and pump installations. Kyle has really impressed me and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found him at this critical point in boat retrofit/upgrade!

Re: Sweet Maureen - introduction

We bought Flying Lady a Hylas 54 in Newport sand brought it back to the Great Lakes through the canal.

We had lots of work done in Newport and are glad we did. Here we haven't yet found people who do the quality of work we think a Hylas deserves and certainly few with any experience with Hylas at all.

We use the forum and get parts directly from the yard in Taiwan.

We sail her about 2000nm a year and spend at least 30 nights aboard. We absolutely love the boat.
