Good to be here
Hello to all from windy Northern California:
I refound sailing about a year ago after some absence (children, life). We hail from Sacramento, CA and have just purchased our first big boat - 1990 MacGregor 26S. She was a bit dusty when we bought her so have spent the last month cleaning and replacing this and that. We're ready for our first shake-down sail this weekend.
There is so much I don't know about boat maintenance (except that the money funnel is flowing). I need tips on rigging, electrical and motor (have a 9hp outboard "Yachtwin"... I don't know if that works yet).
The Sailnet board has been great to read and learn about others. I will find the appropriate threads and try to post my questions there.
Best sailing to all.
