Ahoy from the Chesapeake Bay!

Hi folks -

Here to introduce myself. I currently liveaboard a custom 45' cat designed by Ed Bond (boeing aircraft aeronautical designer) that needs a lot of work. Interested in talking to sailors of all experience for advice. Fairwinds!

What port are you living in or near? Do searches in this forum for all kinds of answers to your questions. I think you will find a cornucopia of knowledge here.

HI BadSanta -

Thanks! your quote is a little daunting to me tho -That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life. -- I feel like that is what I have gotten myself into unforn. and not sure how to get out of it..

heins58, You're talking to people over a wide area. If we goggle MBM we get "Motherboard Moniter". We might not have your local knowledge, So, where are you?

That is sOOoo cool - I never thought of myself as the "Motherboard Moniter" -- neato -- anyhoo.. Middle Branch Marina -- I was trying to play the "DL" or "down - low" thing but I guess that doesn't matter so much here as my marina-mates are not at tech as I -- good too touch base with you Capt.Force... sometimes it seems that I am so on the edge ...

maybe you can suggest a forum for me.. I want to trade or sell (furry the thought) my vessel.. I want to cruise but the legs I have are too complicated for this lone lady.. and her budget.. I have taken on "crew" but that party was short lived (and I thought I drank alot.....).. she is a lovely boat and it is owner financed and almost paid off -- but -- my lack of knowledge is limited to stop-gap/trouble shooting issues... FRAK!!! somebody talk to me

Have you got any pics of your boat heins? I'd like to see what she looks like.
As far as marketing her, you might want to place an ad here in the classifieds, and maybe Sailboat Listings - sailboats for sale
