Inherited Cal 2-27!

Hi everyone,

I am new here and just spent the last hour reading posts. I have SO much to learn!

This seemed like the best thread for my first post since I just inherited a 1979 Cal 2-27, docked in Santa Cruz, CA. She is a pretty boat, but neglected a bit and in need of lots of TLC. I hired a surveyor and have begun fixing her up.

I don't have much sailing experience. I have been crew and first mate (on the boat I inherited), but never before stepped up to skipper. I'm a bit intimidated by the whole thing, mustering up my courage and taking one step at a time into this big adventure. Very glad that my son has decided to join me and we will co-own her.

It is awesome that you are all here to share your stories and advice. Thanks to the folks here on sailnet and my friendly neighbors in the harbor I will get past the fear to the fun. Maybe even before the really nice weather arrives.
