And So The Fun Begins!

Well, the seller and I reached a revised agreement after the survey confirmed an issue (replacing original steel fuel tanks) that had to be dealt with. So this coming weekend we will take possession of a lovely 1985 Ocean Alexander 38. Aft cabin, twin Lehman 135s. The fuel tanks were the only big issue, but I have a long list of more minor things to fix up, so I know I will be on here a lot looking for advice. The plan is 4 years of part time cruising Lake Ontario and environs. Then retirement and winters living aboard down south. I would still like to end up with a Great Harbour N-37, but that will have to wait for the Canadian dollar to recover. So for now we are very happy with the OA 38. Fun times ahead!

Siestakey - she is an 85. Currently she is licensed, but I intend to register her, home port Toronto, with the name "Plan B". Plan A was a Great Harbour, but we can't afford that right now.

Greetings,
Mr. DR. Better re-think the registration name. "Plan B" is already taken...Vessel Listing
Maybe "Plan Bay" (as in French for "B")

You mean to tell me that you can only register 1 Plan B in Canada?

Well, the deal closed today! We are now the owners of a trawler. We took possession at 11 am this morning and then worked continuously until 7 pm, cleaning and organizing. Maria and I are EXHAUSTED, but happy. And I cannot believe how long the TDL is. Don't know how I will fit my real job around all the boat tasks. LOL

Congratulations! Take your time, you and Maria, and the boat, will be friends for a long while. You`ve done well, even from pics it looks like the boat has seen some love, and that is about to continue. Enjoy.
