Brand new Bay Area almost-cruiser!

Hi!

Good fortune visited me a year ago and I purchased the bohemian liveaboard craft of my dreams. She's a 1980 Chris Craft Catalina 350 and we're just starting to get used to each other after a year of timid tinkering.

For the last few years she's been parked where they limped her with a long-neglected to-do list (mostly pertaining to her corroded exhaust). Now we're a starter rebuild away from getting both engines online. So excited! She's got a lot of character and has become a member of the family.

So hello from May, my first mate Andy, and our boat/house/friend Andromeda.
Nice to be here, and let the adventure continue!

May

Welcome, May and Andy, to CF and to the Bay! I sail my J/30 sailboat out of Pier 39 most weekends (currently going through withdrawals as the boat's been at the yard for a month or so).

Re: Brand new Bay Area almost-cruiser!

Welcome aboard May! Whereabouts in the Bay are you? I grew up near Palo Alto and used to explore the sloughs and learned to sail there at Redwood City. Good luck!
