Bought my 1st sailboat

Hello all, I introded myself before I believe. But after 6 months of climbing onto and off of inumerable boats, I've found a 1973 coronado 35' cutter ketch rigged center cockpit vessel named Catharsis. Needs a couple of things, but nothing I can't figure out...I hope.[emoji33]

Now, all this is dependent upon the outcome of the survey, so cross ur fingers.

I'll be living aboard and doing coastal cruising amongst the Southern California Channel Islands. My long term, bucket list sailing goal is to get to the Galapagos Islands.

I've not sailed in over 20 years, and I realize that my skills need to be derusted. So any helpful advice or cautionary tales on this boat in particular (I've never sailed a ketch, only sloops), or on living aboard, or any general boat things to which I ought to attend, will all be greatly appreciated.

I'm still having trouble navigating tapatalk, so if you anyone directs me to look at a thread from before, kindly tell me how to get there..thank you all in advance. I am very excited to get to it![emoji41]

Almost have a boat, almost have the life.
Should be a liveaboard cruising fool in no time.
