Bought our boat, a 33’ 1984 Barryman & Wallace, 4 years ago. Zero experience with vessels this size but I am mechanically inclined. A do it myself guy from the time I was young fellow it didn’t even come into my mind that marine has its own set of rules. All we knew was that we were about to step into a whole different culture. Bought the boat to live on and have been living on it since I purchased it. Haven’t regretted it for not one moment. I will be searching and asking questions of the old salts and look forward to learning knew things.
Thank you for adding me to the group.
Really like the burgee.

Welcome aboard, and yes, there are a whole set of best practices sort of unique to the marine world, and we all continually learn and relearn them.

Hopefully I will learn the really important ones right off the hop. It can be a harsh learning curve if one messes up to bad.
