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, 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!

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.

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).
