Pacific Seacraft Mariah 31 in NYC
Hi folks. I'm Jeff; I've been lurking around a while but with the warm weather finally peeking from around the corner, I thought I'd introduce myself.
In 2007 I lived aboard a columbia 34 in San Francisco, which I sold shortly after moving back to NYC in 2008. In November of 09 I purchased my second sailboat, Play -- a Pacific Seacraft Mariah 31, which I sailed down from Bridgeport CT to Chelsea Piers in Manhattan. I've spent the winter going through her systems and essentially replacing all of them. I have to admit I enjoy working a long day on the boat and then coming home to a warm, spacious (at least compared to the boat) apartment where I can take endless showers and make meals on an actual stove. All of that said, I'm looking forward to taking her offshore for some longer bluewater passages than I felt comfortable attempting in my previous vessel.
I'm always interested to talk to NYC sailors (or sailing enthusiasts) so please don't be a stranger if you see me on the docks at Chelsea, or here in the forums.
