My new Scampi 30!

Friday, I'll be closing on a Scampi 30. 31 years old, but in pretty good shape, terrific sails and in the water ready to go. The survey came back with no major problems, only very minor repairs and cosmetic issues.

Of course, there is the little matter of a hurricane working it's way up the east coast to New England. I guess Friday is probably not the best day to buy a boat!

But after the bad weather this weekend, I'm hoping for some nice weekends before haul out. I have plenty of friends anxious to come for the ride.

Wish me luck!

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.

Yup, thats the one, from the East Greenwich YC. Thanks everyone!

I have the pics from the survey but they don't look too good, having been shot with my phone camera (the surveyor's camera didn't work). I'll take some new ones with a real camera...

This sale included some very nice sails, teo head sail and a main all made with carbon fiber. Spinniker is a little older but that's okay.

Have a Scampi, and some tricks regarding the hydraulic drive, if you need any.
