Seems like you have the right toys for a nice life in retirement. 👍
I’m 52, so I have the stamina, although I do feel the age when I wake in the morning.
Post a pic of your boat on the lake if you can. Cheers

Dean, Markeeta is looking good,very good externally. You achieved a fine relationship with the PO, jointly servicing the engine.
The varnish work looks good too, though sniffing it could contribute to the euphoria.. Hope the good work continues, it is rewarding. Completing it section by section helps keep the enthusiasm up.

Thanks to you Bruce and through your sage advice, the elephant is being eaten bite by bite.

The PO was a great bloke and he was happy to see her go to someone with some enthusiasm. Unfortunately, he died suddenly a few weeks ago, on the eve of him undertaking a year-long cruise up the east coast of Australia with a mate.

Carpe Diem, as they say.

Click choose file(s) and get them from wherever you have them stored. When you have them all added, click "upload". this will take a short time and you will then see the files in the "current attachments" window. Make sure they aren't too big in size - you can check the max file size allowance in the pop up window

In Memory of..."dwhatty" David Hawkins

While working on a dinghy he was building for his Granddaughter, David Hawkins collapsed in his workshop on July 27th of this year & died. Dave was a true lover of the sea and he and his wife Emily cruised their 32' Island Gypsy off the coast of Maine often. Emily is the "sailor" in Dave's life but also enjoyed the "stink pot" life style too!



Dave & Emily visited my wife & I here in La Jolla, CA years ago and we thoroughly enjoyed their company. I will always remember David as the "true Island Gypsy."

Thanks, Walt. Through the years, David was always the guy, “we’d like to meet”. Guess we’ll have to wait a bit longer.

Will say good buy and safe sailing. Sold my boat regrettably, Not my happy moment, but I'm just getting to old and pain ridden to work on her any longer. Besides I don't have much faith in the marina mechanics at $140 per hour to do the job right. Last quote was $7000 to change a fuel tank supposedly with a rust hole. I fixed it since there was no hole, just a bit of surface rust. A small can of rust inhibitor and paint is all it took. $7000, really?

Man, that's no good. But I suppose you had some good times on her on the lake with your best girl and those are memories that people without boats don't have. Let those memories prevail over the ones where people tried to take you for a ride.

Take care mate and I hope you get out on the water with friends regularly ✌️

New owner for El Dorado

Just picked up hull#21 in Terneuzen (Netherlands) and spent 5 weeks motoring to Helsinki (Finland).
Bought from first owner with less than 500 hours on the clock :-)
I have the owners manual (copy) reasonable quality. Will digitize when time permits.
Need to prepare for haul out an winterizing first…
Manual unclear on support structure frame dimensions and drawing seems incomplete.
Any suggestions welcome!
Will post some pics later…
Cheers to the group!!

Hey Lion,

Welcome aboard - 5 weeks with your new boat delivering it home must have been fantastic - I hope you really bonded

A few boat details would be great and pictures set many hearts a-flutter...we really are a weird mob here.

BTW, say high to Kurt Wallander if you bump into him.

once again welcome
