Welcome to SN (some dance to remember . . . some dance to forget)!
Tiny Bubbles was instrumental in me going ahead with the big trip using the PSC25, and even to use the Tomcat for a dinghy. Good stuff, for sure.

PSC 25? Nice ride, Tully*!

Thanks for the warm welcome! I didn't expect so many responses, let alone before noon. Are you guys unemployed too?

The boat is a Pacific Seacraft 25, circa 1978. She is sturdy double-ender.

I will post something elsewhere to share the story about our journey being planned.

I pick things up quickly, and I am skilled and knowledgeable about tools and what to do with them. I have a big project ahead.

I hope to find some support for my cruising trip coming up, and guidance with repairs and readying the boat.

From what I've read it looks like Im in the right place. Jerry
Welcome - anybody who takes up sailing in New Mexico can't be all bad - lot's of determination certainly.

You are talking about water type sailboats and not land sailors aren't you?

It sure takes some of the wind out of the sails when someone invites himself to be teased! But, we don't tease here, we re-educate.

Welcome, put on your PFD and hang on.
