Hello from Stonington

First year with a sail boat.
I used to have a small motor boat for about 20 some years.
Now to better things.
Adele-H is a Trident 80, built in 1977 in LaRochelle France. (26')
After a wonderful summer, I have her in the driveway and have already done a bit of work on the motor. An original YSE8 I love it!
the interior is next and in the spring the exterior will get some attention.
Looking forward to meeting some of you out on the water and also talking about sailing on the forums.

Welcome to sailnut!

Have you read: http://www.amazon.com/Coast-Summer-sailing-England-Shelter/dp/1574090747His home port was Stonington and he sailed a 27' Tartan (like mine) around your area a few decades ago. Still a good read.

Here is a spec for the Trident 80: TRIDENT 80 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

Re: Hello from Stonington

Thank you.
Great specs, that's my baby.
I haven't read the book yet, I think that it might be onboard this spring.
