Late introduction from San Diego

Hello SailNetters,

I'm Leander. I joined SailNet 1-2 years ago, but never posted an introduction.

I'm a physician in my sixties, practicing full time, with a wife, also son and daughter (kids in their 20's). I have been sailing off and on since about age 13, (started with a wood Sailfish), but have never owned a sailboat. I consider myself at kind of a stable "beginner-intermediate" stage. I have limitations common to many sailing men: I love to sail, my wife doesn't, my kids are ho-hum about it but sail with me sometimes, I like all my family, and I spend a lot of time working. Aside from working, I'd probably rather be sailing, working on, or just being on a sailboat in my spare time. I usually stay in a sailing club, and typically sail a Capri 18,22, 25 club boat. I also have a friend with a 44' schooner and sail with him a lot. I'm typically in San Diego Bay, Mission Bay, or nearby ocean. Have done a single 3 day sail on the schooner to Dana Point. I'm mechanically oriented and particularly like to have a detailed understanding of all the mechanical and electrical systems on a boat. I'm interested in do-it-yourself on just about anything on a sailboat, although my experience level is low.
I am at the point where I have decided to buy a boat of my own, and at present am considering Ericson 35-2s.

Bought Ericson 35-2 May 2011
