Hello, Cruisers Forum

I have been lurking around here for awhile, on and off,great site.I am a former owner of a Ranger 26.I spent a couple years daysailing in Charlston S.C. .Did some coastal cruising ,south from Charlston ended up selling the boat after coming back up to St.Augustine FL. I spent a couple years back in the North Carolina mountains.Have now puchased a Prairie 32,And have done an extensive amount of work on her myself.New yanmar 3gm30f,interior paint and cushions ,new cabin sole ,manual windlass installed,new bottom paint,extensive re wire including color chartplotter ,vhf ,main sail patch, ground tackle,etc.basically a complete refit .Sails and rigging in great shape it had sat on the hard for a number of years before i purchased.I am presently still living in the Mountains and get down to the coast a couple times a month.Looking foward to taking her out sailing next time im down .Just a few more hookups to be done .

Hey Sheepshank.... Welcome to CF..
Good job you stopped lurking mate... we were getting ready to tell you to get knotted...

It was a dark and stormy night and the captain of the ship said.. "Hey Jim, spin us a yarn." and the yarn began like this.. "It was a dark and stormy night.."

Welcome to the forum.
