Smile Hello from Southern California

Greetings everyone. My name is Ian Adams, I live in Riverside, California but spend most of my time in Newport and Del Mar. I grew up sailing the coast of California, but have never owned a boat before. However, my wife and I have begun searching for one and hopefully within the next few months we will find something. Of course, then we need to find a home for it.
Presently I am working full time as an automotive technician specializing in electrical and driveability diagnostics. I was a radar tech in the Army, am chasing a degree in electronic engineering technology and am hoping to get into marine electrical work in the near future. If you work in the field I'd love to hear from you.

I long for the solitude
of a sunset at sea,
and the chill of the breeze
coming in with the eve.
For the motion of my boat,
as she swings on her rode,
and the beauty of the stars,
in the evenings last glow.
-R.C. Gibbons

Hi Ian, welcome to Sailnet. Hope you find a boat and get out on the water. I imagine you will be able to help out on some of the electrical questions here.

Welcome to Sailnet. Both my wife and I grew up in Riverside. In fact I learned to sail on the lake in Fairmount Park .

Hope you and your wife are able to find your boat soon
