Hello from Southern California

Greetings,

I'm finally getting around to posting this. I just recently purchased a 1976 Islander 36. It is a pretty clean boat but needs the typical repair and replacement that a boat that age would need.

I've been sailing for about 6 years (mostly lake and SF bay). More recently, I have been sailing out of the Long Beach, CA area.

My wife and kids love it and we will be spending more time on the water once I get a handful of things repaired on our boat.

Welcome aboard. The wife and I sail out of San Pedro harbor. Glad to see it warm and windy enough for a good sail here! Have you been to Catalina yet this year?

Not yet. I moved the boat from Newport Beach to Wilmington a few weeks back and have been just working on the boat. Our plan is to keep it in Wilmington for probably 6-8 months and then move it to Shoreline in Long Beach. I probably have another month or so of work and then we are heading over to Catalina. My friend does harbor patrol over there and they have gotten nailed pretty good a couple times in the last 6-8 weeks with weather. Sounds like it has been pretty calm over there lately.

We sailed out there back on the weekend of 4/17 and had good weather. Things have been rougher these past few weekends.

We're down in Wilmington at Newmark's Yacht Centre, so maybe we'll pas each other at some point.

You'll probably see us around. We're down the road at CYM.
