Another new member, ...
Hello every one, ... Just had an offer accepted on my fourth boat, ... A Contessa 26, ... hurricane damaged but still beautyfull.
Plan on fixing her up this summer, .... comes with trailer and new 8hp yanmar (less than 100 hours!)Sails are fine for dicking around here with but she''ll need a new main befor we head, ... south? ... east? ... south first eh?
Oh yea, I''m in PEI, .... about as good a jumping off spot as any!
Any way, two shrouds, two stanshions (sp)and all the teak on the port side will need to be replaced as well as a couple of holes in the cabin (the size of pencils, ... I wonder what did that?) and a big hole in her bow above the water line where she bucked against the concrete floating dock. .... Lots of work ahead of me eh? ....
Done alot of cruiseing, ... and looking forward to lots more! ... Who knows, ... may even bump into a few of you on the travels!
Oh yea, ... I can get over how heavely built these little boats are, .... Her hull is over twice as thick as some of the larger fiberglass boats I''ve been on.
