Sailor from Olympia Washington USA

My name is Michael Paulson. I am 58 and have been boatless for several years. I found I missed being on the water. I am negotiating the purchase of a Mercator Offshore 30, Brine Stormer. Needs a refit but a beautiful boat. I look forward to being back in the wind and making new sailing friends.

Greetings MichaelNW,

The PNW is pretty well represented here. Are you going to keep your boat down in Olympia?

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Thanks for the welcome!

I will be keeping the boat in Olympia. Trying to decide between Fiddlehead and Swantown. Any opinions?

Brinestormer gets surveyed 10/10. I will move it to Olympia at the end of the month. Then the work begins! Any recommendations for local sail repair?

Hey Michael,

No prob on the Brine Stormer article. W/ mail from Port Angeles on Tuesday.

You're sailing the boat to Olympia toward end of this month? I keep my Mercator, Iris, in Tacoma, Foss Harbor Marina. If you're passing by give me a call. 206-384-2078 cell.

Steve
