New owner of a Pilgrim

Hello all,
Just wanted to drop a note and introduce myself. I am in contract to purchase a 1984 40foot Pilgrim tug type trawler. The boat is presently in Maryland, but will be coming to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in March or so.
I moved from sail to power because of physical limitations following a hip replacement.
The Pilgrim, now named THIN BLUE LINE, will become MERIDIAN(squared).
I welcome any present owners of other pilgrims to chime in and contact me.
