Greetings From Pensacola

My Wife and I have been receiving weekly emails from the Sailnet Sailing Community and we enjoy the posts tremendously! A wealth of information with enough "checks and balances" to ensure the solution is provided. We are currently revamping a Soverel 48 we bought from a Charity in St. Pete; so far, we have about 11 months of work and a fair amount of investment. We hope to splash the boat by May 09.

We are looking forward to gaining and sharing knowledge with you all.

Bruce & Lisa

Thank you!

Thank you all for the warm greetings, so far at least Ms. Fay is staying to the south of us. The Soverel is on the hill but my O'Day is anchored out, Makes me nervous...

Yeah looks like the storm is staying on our side of the state--Really nothing to much to be concerned with, wind, rain, which accually helps me sleep! I figure lfe is to short to worry about some stupid storm--you go when its your time. Got any pictures of the boat?

Bruce, nice to have you on board. Stay low. I sent you a Private Message about a topic that I thought you might be able to help me with.
Thanks,
Tim

I'm from Pensacola also. We have a 37 year old Cal25 that we bought last year. We did a hurried bottom job and updated the cabin some and then enjoyed 8 months of sailing. I pulled her out when I went away for four months of military training and have been so busy since I returned that I still haven't finished the few things I want to do before I put her back in the slip. By the way don't buy the West Marine Brand Ablative paint, it doen't work. My boat "Warhorse" is at Bayou Gande marine on NAS.
