Thanks for the welcome

have my eyes on a catalina 320 right now - have found a potential home for it in Port Washington/Manorhaven on Long Island's north shore so it's not too far a trek from home - all
depends on how the survey goes this week

Aloha from the Hawaiian islands...

Howzit JN,
Look for the sailing vessel Nordic Knight on LI sound. My relatives. Berthed on North Shore, somewhere. Get a boat and start sailing. Good luck.

Survey went extremely well - Just a couple of minor things to have taken care of - Looks like I'll be taking possession first part of next week - Then I'll have enlist some crew to get it to it's new home - Isn't it great??!!
