Rep Power: 16

This is going to sound crazy to this group, but I have finished upgrading my boat. I now have no plans other than to do regular maintenance. I bought my 1980 Santana 35 from a guy in Newport, RI in 2003. He was the original and only owner, and it was showing signs of age. I have re-powered, replaced the overhead liner, added shore power and a hard wired battery charger, repaired some anomalies in the deck, made new engine side panels and interior floor panels, and added a furler and lazy jacks. That's it. Done. Other than the re-power and the furler, all of the work has been done with the boat in the water, and I have to admit that some sailing has been missed to work on upgrades. No more of that. I've considered a lot of other things that can be done, and written them off as unnecessary for my sailing venue. It's a good feeling. I wonder if any other members look at it the same way.
