G'day

Just want to say howdy to y'all.

My name is Brian, I am new to this forum but have been totally absorbed and frankly blown away by the quality of the content and the breadth of the knowledge.

We have just sold our Hunter Legend 326 and am finalizing the surveys on a 1977 Crealock designed Del Rey 50, heavy displacement long keel blue water cruising boat. Four years to go and counting before the big jump off!!

Current sailing area is North Wales and Irish Sea, soon to be the Mediterranean, later it will be the Pacific islands where I spent most of my time as a deck officer in the Merchant Marine.

See you on the far side.

Thank you for your words.
A big switch indeed with a major change in mindset and boat handling skills! But what a beautiful boat! .
