Proud new owner of a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41

I'm the proud new owner of a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41. My wife and I almost bought this one listed on Yachtworld, but it had engine and rig problems that the seller wasn't willing to make a concession on so we walked away. It was located up in Santa Barbara, CA not too far from where I'm at in San Diego.
We ended up getting a different Cheoy Lee Offshore 41 that was near Annapolis, MD. My dad went out for the survey and we bought it, sight unseen by our eyes. We flew out to meet our new boat for the first time last weekend, and we packed her up to ship to the west coast.
It's good that we didn't end up getting the Offshore 41 in Santa Barbara, because the systems on the new boat are better, she just needs lots of bright work, and some work on the mast foot.
It feels good to have a new boat on the way, I just can't wait to get her off the truck and in the water next week.
Does anyone else have a new boat in their future? Soon I'll be moving off my Catalina 27 and on to the new boat and it will be great to be able to stretch out a bit! If you want to follow the adventure, we'll be blogging about the transition from liveaboard to cruiser at Aboard Astraea | Invest in experiences, not things

Congratulations! Not many things more exciting than buying a new boat especially one as nice as that. I can safely say you got yourself an amazing boat, I spent a lot of time on one a few years ago.

Great blog too. Just added to my list of favorites. Keep the updates coming!

Yup, I'm excited for the move too. She's going in to the yard here in San Diego Tuesday for the mast work. The plan is to make the inside as habitable as possible because my wife is 5 months pregnant. There's quite a bit of water damage around the portlights, so the first big job is going to be removing and rebedding them. Hopefully when the portlights come out there won't be any soft spots in the cabin top.
We're also going to remove the 30 year old headliner and install an additional handhold for increased safety at sea. Later we'll either replace the headliner with new material or try a wooden veneer overhead.

You may want to consider a white laminate or white 'planked' panels w/ wood trim rather than an all-wood overhead. Much brighter, esp with a lot of other wood below already.

Try to find some pics of a Passport for an example of this..

Congrats. My family owned one of these for 26 years or so. Nice boats. Lots of brightwork. Can handle some ugly weather too. We took it from the NYC area all over the mid-atlantic and northeast, out to Bermuda and up to Nova Scotia. Good times.
