Yay! got my boat!

Well technically she's not mine yet but everything is settled as she has passed sea trial and survey and I faxed in the final acceptance. Thanks to everyone who answered all my stupid questions. Now all I need to do is move her from Oxnard to San Francisco, fix all the little stuff and equip her. I imagine that will be fun and aggravating at the same time, and will probably require me to post a lot more stupid questions

Well .... She's a 1971 Swan 37. She has some sort of Doyle laminate sails. I think they might be racing sails since they have numbers on them, and they have what looks like black carbon stands in them. The Surveyor said they still looked to be in good shape. The mast was repainted 4 years ago and the standing rigging replaced with dyform. The engine is a 27 HP Westerbeke and runs like clockwork. The interior is in good shape except for one spot under a porthole that needs some new veneer. Evidently the porthole was fixed already.

As I said she does need some fixes and upgrades. The foot pumps in the galley don't work. One is frozen and the other simply doesn't pump. She also doesn't have any windlass or even a hole in the deck for a rode. I'll probably put a vertical windlass in. Also the electronics are kind of old but still functional. The main winches feel like they need a rebuild. The surveyor didn't find any problems with the hull or deck so hopefully I'm OK in that department and to my eye she looks solidly built.

I'm way hyped about this! I spent a fair amount of time traveling around and looking at boats but I don't consider it wasted because now I have a better feeling I found the right boat for me.

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.

Yes, some of us here have been keeping track of your adventures... Glad you found something that satisfies. A Classic to be sure.. and in good shape too. Well done!

I am going to guess that the sails you have are flex laminate.

Congratulations on the boat.
