Surprise

We bought "Surprise", a 1977 Catalina 27 to have a place to decompress, enjoy the wind, and brush up on our sailing skills.

We got an out of water survey and she's sound. With any 34 year old boat, she'll need constant care.

So wish us luck...

Best wishes. Hopefully you have crawled through and searched every nook and cranny. Not so much to look for flaws, but to become part of your boat and develope a good relationship.

@rabrasi I'll keep my eye for Sandpiper II. For now I'm at Dolphin Marina, but that may soon change...
