It would be FAR better to start a new thread about this topic.

New to the forum and very excited to learn from everyone. We are from Florida and currently looking for a 38' Californian to live on part-time. So, I guess this is the perfect forum to learn.

Thank you all for having us.
Julio and Nora

Welcome aboard, Nora! Is that a 38 Californian Sedan? Saw one recently with Twin Cats that looked like a fun boat!

Another newbie from Australia

Hi to all.
Purchased my "Dream Boat" almost one month ago and am looking forward to spending time getting to know her better.
She is a 1985 Clipper 34 Mark III that appears to be pretty tidy overall but with room for more TLC and $$ of course.
"Happy Hour" will soon travel from Broken Bay (NSW) to Lake Macquarie - about (40Nm) where the family and friends are keen to enjoy what she has to offer.
I found this site by accident recently and it (along with YouTube) has provided much useful information to someone who knows very little about diesel engines etc etc.
Almost at retirement age now and I have owned many boats. Moving on from sailboats after a love affair with the wind in my face for the last 17 years has been an enormous leap of faith but I believe the benefits will be soon realised. Photo attached to prove it has happened and I do look forward to reading about the experiences of others as I go on my new journey on the water.

Some call me Captain Mac - but they laugh when saying it, I'm sure.

Mac, welcome to the group.
Yea, I know about that 'making the boat yours' with additional equipment and "STUFF". My best advice is, make a plan.... what do you want to do the first season and then what to do then next season etc. Generally speaking, based upon my own experience ..... when adding and modifying things to make the boat "yours", remember you are also preparing the boat for the next owner too. When you get started with the upgrades etc, it will be much easier to just 'bend over and grab your ankles.' There are people who keep an account on how much they have spent, I am not one of those people.
I have 'put a lot of perfume on the pig', my AT34. I have just 2 or 3 more things to do SMILE. Always just 2 or 3 more things to do. LOL
If the next owner is not satisfied, he should have bought a different boat. SMIRK
Upgrading my electronics is barely on the "List of things to do." IF I replaced all the electronics today, next year there will be "improvements." LOL So the next owner can complain about me and upgrade the electronics to his desire.

Welcome aboard TF

To start a new thread just scan & choose the correct sub-forum i.e. General Discussion and click on it near the top left you should find a "New Thread" button. That should get you started. Just take a few minutes and try to choose the "best" section to post your question - you will get better responses.

If you want / need a post moved click on the report post button - bottom left of the post and add a note requesting a site team member move the post. We try to catch posts that belong in a different area but hard to catch all.

No problem asking - ask away someone will jump in to assist
Again Welcome

1 last last question - I notice that most members have a pic of their boat along with their other info to the left of their posts. I did add a pic to my profile (UserCP > Edit Profile Picture) but it doesn't appear when I post. Am I missing something?
Thx again for your patience!

No problem w/ questions

Profile Pics are different than Avatars - you can do both from User CP (Top Banner Left)
I think you entered a profile pic which shows up when anyone clicks on your user name your profile info pops up.
Avatars show up along w/ your posts and I think that's what you are after

Below the Welcome Mat is a sub-Forum on How To Use The Forum and a "Sticky" w/in that is Forum 101 which will answer many / all of your questions and is a great place to start.
I wouldn't recommend trying to study and remember everything but rather scan through it to become familiar and go back when you have questions.

Re: where to find Sub-Forums - From the TF Home Page / Screen if you scroll down you will see the various Sections / Sub-forum which help organize the posts & info contained within... in addition to the 2 already mentioned above which are part of the main Trawler Forum you will find: General Discussion; Marinas; Financial; etc

Below the Heading Trawler Forum you will find additional Headings & Sub-Forums

Classifieds
Maint & Systems
Cruising & Events
Builders Forum

Hope that helps

I would recommend reading FAQ as many of these common questions are answered there.
