Thanks, Barry, I will most certainly be sticking around.
I don't know how active I'll be on the Pearson board because once I sell my 23, I'll be working on a Hunter 25 and a Cape Dory 28. So you might find me on those forums, or the general boards, more than on here.
Because I'm a boat transporter by trade, I often come across deals that other's can't jump on. And that's how I came across my Pearson 23 and the Hunter 25. And I do enjoy renovating them - I'd much rather hoist a sail than a chainsaw, although I have cut up a couple.
But I appreciate the warm welcome. And I will indeed checkout those links. I should have thought of SailBoatOwners.com myself - I already have an account there.
