pirate Hello from the North Bay, CA

I thought I'd take a minute in introduce myself.

I actually found this board while doing research on the Nor'West 33 I recently bought, as a discussion had come up about it and there were very limited returns from an internet search.

I'd been out sailing a couple times throughout my life, and absolutely loved it, but didn't really get into it until a year and a half ago when I bought the Columbia 28. Then I turned into a lunatic, (my wife was worried ) taking it out over 60 times and at least 700nm in SF Bay Area. It was a great escape from all the covid-fires-political madness over the last year!

Feeling a little like the dog that caught the car with the Nor'West, as it sat 5 slips down from my Columbia at Napa Valley Marina for months during which I told the harbormaster, "Will you please sell that damn thing so I can stop looking at it!" Kinda obvious what happened.....
Will probably be hauling it out for a bottom job/seacock repair in the next couple of months, only half a year after completing the bottom on the Columbia which I'll sell eventually.

Dream is eventually to cruise at least to the central Pacific, where I lived for a year longer ago than I'd like to admit.

I do a lot of my sailing singlehanded, but if anybody in the area would ever want to tag along or have me along on your boat, I'd love to.

Re: Hello from the North Bay, CA

Welcome aboard CF, Jim. Enjoy your stay.

Jim and I met when he had a Yankee 30, berthed at Emeryville, and sailed all over the bay, and in MORA in the ocean. Long time ago now, we went on to become long term cruisers.

Re: Hello from the North Bay, CA

Welcome.

I would suggest updating your profile with your general location and your boat make & model or “Looking” in the "Boat" category. This info shows up under your UserName in every post in the web view. Many questions are boat and/or location dependent and having these tidbits under your UserName saves answering those questions repeatedly. If you need help setting up your profile then click on this link: https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums...ml#post3308797

I would happily help more if the link above is not enough.
