Bought the Boat, the adventure begins

Well, the deal finally closed and I have bought a 1979 Pearson 365 Sloop rigged Sailboat. The survey and sea trial went well. No major problems noted in either one. I had recently sold my powerboat, so now I'm a sailboat owner, hopefully I will save some money on my fuel bills.

It had been a few years since I sailed, so I took a few lessons to refresh my memory and I have hired a instructor for some docking practise and instruction on the new boat next week.

I did most of the maintenance on my power boat and I hope to continue that trend with my new boat, so I'm sure I will be posting some questions for the the board.

The boat is currently in San Pedro, California.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Congrats! You will come to love your 365 - my best friend and sailing buddy of 40 years, bought a new 365 sloop at the Houston boat show and kept it until he retired to a farm in South Texas a couple of years ago. Great boat, we sailed "Skimmer" all over, Galveston to Vera Cruz, Galveston to Brownsville, all over the Gulf and slogged through some really bad weather without a hitch. It's got one of the best nav stations on any boat - you can sit at the nav station and talk to the helmsman. Great sea berths, etc.

That is a nice boat and Pearsons have a solid reputation so congrats. Are you in CA too? (hint: you can put your location in your profile so it shows up in each post).

Welcome to the "right" side, you will be blessed with hot sex from many women (or your spouse) for decades to come.

Or not.

Seriously,
welcome! Great boat!

May you enjoy many sunsets and full moon cruises. A sail boat is many things to many folks. Those that like to tinker , and endless project list of ideas to try; to the adventureous a path to new places and people, and to most the best therapy that money can buy.
