Belated introduction

Hi,

OK, so its become apparent to me I don't know the proper edicate for online forums. I've read that you should post a picture of yourself as an introduction, but of course you can't until you have ten posts. So, I have ten posts and thought I would try a proper introduction.

So, here's my belated introduction:

My name is Gary and I came to the forums because a PSC 37 owner told me to check the sailnet forums for advice on a compression post problem on a PSC 34 I was looking at buying. I have to say it has been a pleasure to read through the forums, there's a lot of great information. It's equally important to see and hear from a large group of people who share my passion with sailing, thanks.

I've lived aboard my 1959 Choey Lee Lion for around 13 years, I lived on an Atkin's Eric 32 (Suhali sister ship, later to be made of glass as a Westsail 32) before the Lion and had a Santana 22 before that. I've sailed since I was 12 (Lasers and Sunfish...) but feel like there's always much more to learn than I know. I've sailed up and down the west coast but I've never sailed in the Atlantic or the Gulf, or unfortunately sailed beyond the West coast of the US and Mexico at all.

Many of my friends have made the jump and gone cruising. I remain here trying to get my "ship together". I appreciate the forums and thank you for the great resource and community.

-Gary

Welcome aboard, Gary!

You'll get lots of helpful advice from the people here. Just watch out for a certain Portugee with a really nice boat...

Yes, I've seen his posts. The quality of joinery work on the cabinet in his v-berth alone has messed up my equilibrium altogether.

Welcome Gary...

Did you buy the PSC34 in question?

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.

I didn't buy the PSC 34, but I'm still looking. She was fairly beat and the price wasn't in line with the lack of maintenance/damage. My finances have gotten tighter lately and I'm vacillating between keeping my Lion or "pulling the trigger" on a PSC 34. It's a tough decision for me, and I kick myself on a few PSCs I didn't move on that have sold. Its interesting that most of the PSCs on Yachtworld aren't selling quickly, or at all, or have gone to "sale pending" only to return to "for sale" a few weeks later.

Welcome Gary, and thank you for the introduction. I think it is a nice gensture to post: "hi, I am new, here is something about me", it adds to our community.

By the way, you are very brave posting a picture, Giu, play nice.

Welcome Gary! Your not missing much from the right coast! (all them coasters running aground, breaking rudders off, loosing masts, sinking at the docks, keeping the coast guard busy. I think toll gates on the ICW are going to be the next surprise.
