Hello and greetings from Marathon, Fl. We are Mike & Stacey and here's our story.
We are currently 48. When our last of five children
entered college last spring, we sold
the main house, put the kids
in a rental house and ran away from home to the Florida Keys
where we live on what was supposed to be our Great Loop Cruiser (one that took me 4-5 years to restore/renew). It's a 1979 Marinette Express Cruiser
that like the CSY's has an almost cult-like following. I'm going to hate to sell it, but I don't want to deal with 2 boats here.
Our goal was to learn how to sail and buy a sailboat and cruise
. Well "someday" came last week and we could not pass up a 79 CSY 37
plan B shoal draft for sale
locally by the original (very experienced) owners. We took possession today.
So now all we have to do is renew her, learn how to sail, cruise
, celestial navigate, HAM, etc. A year from now we plan our first cruise the Bahamas
I've been lurking here on this site over a year (I think).
I'm looking for a CSY
owner's forum. If anyone has directions, it would be appreciated. Also, any other 37 owners who have renewed their boats, please say hi.... if you don't mind me bugging you with questions!
