Proud new boat mooch

Hello forum folks, I have been lurking for a while and figured I should introduce myself. I'm in the midst of some repairs and upgrades to an older Mainship 34 mark 3 my father bought back in September and I found this site to be a great source of valuable information. The boat was well cared for and surveyed well for its age but it will be used a bit differently than the prior owner's use so we are installing a generator and adding some electronics in addition to some typical repairs. My entire family has a fair amount of time on the water but this style of boating is new to us and fun to experience. I find the experiences and preferences shared on this site regarding various ships systems to be very useful and I want to incorporate the various lessons learned into any change we make to this old boat. Now that I’ve introduced myself I’ll have a few specific questions to post in the other sections of the forum. Thanks for access to this excellent site and the knowledge everyone has contributed.

Welcome and congrats on the new boat. I had a '79 34 Mainship for years and she served my family very well.

Waypoint's are abstract, often having no obvious relationship to any distinctive features of the real world.

Welcome. Your Mainship looks like she's in great shape. We had a 1981 and if we down size, we'd consider another one.
