Greetings from the Strait
 
...of Juan de Fuca

I've been lurking about for a while, and really appreciate all the knowledge and attendant friendliness around this place. My husband and I have the "maintenance" partners in an Ericson 34 for years, and are now looking to buy a 35 - 42 footer to take us cruising for as many years as we can handle. (BTW, I thought I posted a hello a moment ago - but since I don't see it, I'll try again. Sorry if it's a repeat...)
Cheers, Carla

Welcome to Sailnet and best of luck with the boat search.

Welcome, Carla!

Where on the Strait are you? Are you the lighthouse keeper on Smith Island?

Wouldn't that be fun! I love lighthouses, from the water or from land. Alas, I'm a landlubber in Port Angeles. Thanks for the good wishes re: our search for a boat!

Oh, I see... You're just "Strait Adjacent"

And from PA no less! Spouse was born there, parents still live there, grandpa had a restaurant there for 40'ish yrs if I have the yrs correct. Some day will sail out there when we have a day or two to get there from edmonds.

A bit quicker, but I still have to pay jody for said genoa! it will be quicker yet when the UK TDS main comes in in 2-3 wks! We did pretty good last week with it tho, will have to see how it goes next wednesday.

Hi Carla, welcome. We have lot's of family in PA, it's a great place to sail out of. My brother in law has a very nice Hans Christian 43 for sale there if that is of interest, it's in excellent shape (ad is in 48 North).
