Thanks for the warm welcome and GB forum suggestion. The Boat is a 1978 GB Europa hull # 612. She was moored in Anacortes and has done some cruising. It is set up to be able to cruise to Alaska. I am in the beginning of retirement, and love the pacific coast so I jump right in. I have a large learning curve and time to do it. For those of you in the PNW you might have seen her once or twice. Her name is the Quadra. Her Previous owner wrote for the Passagemaker and I am honored to be the new owner.
