Bill from Channel Islands, CA

New to sailing by 1 year. Have a 67 CAL 34 since last August. The boat had been tied to the dock for the last 6 years with the interior redone. The old Atomic 4 had plugged plumbing and some electirical problems that have been resolved and it purrs like a kitten now. Had some problems getting out of the slip due no previous experience with a folding prop. In fact, the first attempt was downright embarrassing. I puttered around the harbor last week to set the engine timing and make sure the engine cooled, charged, etc.. I hope to take it out for the first sail in a week or two.
My sailing experience is rather limited and I am hoping someone reading this from the Santa Barbara/Ventura/Oxnard area may be willing to accompany me on the maiden voyage.
