Well, we did it...

We finally pulled the trigger on a '02 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37. We motored from Deltaville, VA to Deale, Md this past weekend with a brief respite in Solomons.



I'm thankful the first owner sprung for a 40HP diesel after dealing with a headwind for 2 days.



The boat is equipped nicely and should be no problem sailing single handed. She's scheduled for some new bottom paint and I'm looking forward to some time at dock just get familiar with everything.

The previous owner has the MMSI in the VHF (Standard Horizon GX3350S) that I understand must be sent to the factory for reset. Does anyone know if a dealer can do this?

Re: Well, we did it...

This is from the Boatus website regarding possible transfer.
Quote:
: I have purchased a boat & radio with an MMSI number programmed into it. Can the MMSI number be transferred over to me?

A: If the MMSI number was assigned by BoatUS and the previous owner has closed the account, we can re-register the MMSI number for the new owner. If the previous owner has not closed the account, we will attempt to contact them to verify that they are not still using the number in another radio. If the previous owner cannot be contacted or is still improperly using the MMSI you will need to reprogram the radio with a new number. To check if your MMSI was assigned through BoatUS, Call 1-800-563-1536 and make sure to provide the MMSI number in all correspondence
More info is available here:

Re: Well, we did it...

Finally got a couple pics uploaded (and added). More to come!

As far as the MMSI - I've gone the FCC route so I have a new MMSI. I hope to hear back from Standard Horizon soon and I'll let you know the outcome.
