SalishCraig - Sailnet Member Introduction
Greetings fellow sailors!
I'm a returing member to sailnet...For those of you outside of the Seattle area that might not know the ligo for local cruising areas. The "Salish Sea" is a name given to Puget Sound, Starits of Juan De Fuca and Straits of Georgia. It's derived from the name of the local first nations people that inhabitied this region before European colonization.
I've sign up again to get active in this online community of sailors and hopefully find crew for a sail back from Cabo San Lucas to Seattle in the spring of 2012, and to seek answers to boat maintenance questions.
I own a 37-foot 1993 Pacific Seacraft that I've re-fit for cruising along the Pacific Coast. I will be sailing between Seattle and Mexico this coming Fall and Winter...exploring the anchorages and bays in WA, OR, Claif and MX.
I have a few maintenance items to complete before shoving off and no doubt I will be posting threads in the Pacific Seacraft boat area with questions related to work that I am doing.
We just finished installing all hard dodger, bimini, new electronics (including chart plotter), new rigging, new lifelines, all new electric in the mast, new mast top instruments, liferaft, re-packed the pudder post replaced deck hardware, etc.
Next we have scupper drain hoses to replace and a windlass to re-build. Those jobs I expect will be a challange.
Anyway, please feel free to say hello. Its always fun to gam with fellow boat people.
