My name is Hal Hopkins and along with my first mate Tish we purchased a 1985 Cabo Rico 38 last August. We keep our boat in the Swan Creek Marina and live on a farm only a few miles away. So far we have not had a lot of time to work on the boat as house projects came first, you know a roof over our head. Now that the house is livable we can focus more on the boat. We joined the Swan Creek Sailing Association and what a great group of sailers they are!!!! So far we have only gotten in a couple of overnights but I hope to do a week around Labor Day if everything works out. I hope this thread will grow and give us a chance to meet other CR owners and exchange thoughs, stories, problems and anything else that might be of interest.

Cabo Rico owners

Hi there Cabo Rico owners. I'm a year out of date, but I have just noticed the thread. My wife and I bought a CR 38 from Florida nearly three years ago. Since then she has shivered her timbers in the chilly Irish Sea. We berth her in a delightful marina which used to be an port for transporting slate mined in the Welsh mountains. Fruition is a magnificent boat, but
the first two years were something of a nightmare because there were so many major jobs that had not come up on the survey. This season was the first I could say she has become a genuine turnkey boat. Pity about the weather though. The last two summers in the UK have been particularly dismal, with gales and rain.

I know a lot of boats have owners' clubs, and I know there used to be a CB club, but not any more. Perhaps if there was enough interest we could start one again?

Best wishes

Steve Moss
