Re: Where do the Cheoy Lee Folks Hangout?

One of things I was warned about was the "leaky teaking" label. I live on vancouver island in British Columbia, it rains here a lot, and she's dryer inside than my old US25. I contribute the dryness to the previous owners keeping up the maintenance.
Like you say, I'm in love and its a pride in ownership thing!
I know what your saying about the weight and length, with the bowsprit she's 36'. Coming in at a healthy 10500lbs its a far cry from docking m old boat.
The electronics are up too date. There is a perkins m30 that runs great. My priority is to get the masts lacquered when the weather gets better. Have you any experience with this?
