Ahoy from Pago Pago

Hello, Steve Shimanek in American Samoa; I bought a Lancer 36 a few months ago and have been putting in a lot of time on repairs, with more to go. I did a valve job and cleaned the fuel injectors, but the engine is still tired; i need to do an in water replacement of the cutlass bearing; paint the interior after taking out the old headliner, wiring, etc etc. I was a marine repair professional earlier in life.
I have been reading on this site for a while and thought it was time to register. Sailing goal is to complete preliminary repairs, sail locally for a while before major refit and engine rebuild, then prep for a South Pacific jaunt before sailing back to Hawaii, where my wife and I lived for many years before moving here.
Fair winds!
