Bluefuss the new boy!

Hello to all. I live and work in western Canada, all parts! I have sailed dinghy's a lot as a young man, a bit of time on a 40 footer on Lake Ontario and a bunch of weerkend racing last winter in Nanaimo BC. I have wanted to live aboard and cruise most of my life, and have spent years doing it thru magazines and the net!Haha. WELL I"M ALMOST THERE!!! I looked at a Tayana 37 a couple of days ago and I will make an offer (as soon as the brokers holidays r over. Whats this Xmas thing all about anyway?) If the deal works I will sail her off the coast of BC for a year or so and then start a nice slow cruise to any place on this damn planet I choose. lol.
So I've spent years researching forums, web sites etc. and know the Tayana 37 has the potential to make me happy. There r others I like as well but they all seem to be something like the Tayana or Crealock, Hans Christian etc. I love a well looked after classic. Used to own a 58 corvette and would never have settled for something new, just never turned me on.
Ok enough of me , u know what I'm looking at, (with a mixture of absolute bliss and lots of trepidation.) I know u have the wisdom, can I please hear some?

Welcome... once you start cruising here you may not be in a hurry to leave the BC coast... years worth of cruising before needing to venture further afield!
