Wow! What a wonderful treasure of info -- I was not expecting that coming back to check responses.
I have been listening to the morning cruisers net on channel 10, and may or may not have been eavesdropping on other channels. I'm learning
quite a lot about how things work
around here just by listening to these conversations.
In many ways, I did get very lucky to get my hands on this particular boat
. She's not the biggest, she's not prettiest, but she's an excellent example of a Vega. I have her previous owners (Jon and Juliet) here in town for a few weeks, and they've been tremendously helpful with the transition.
They've instructed me to go pester people at all the boats on anchor
once I get out there, so if a pale dude, in a dinky dinghy
comes up to your boat
, you have them to blame.
