Greetings from San Francisco!
I am in contract now to purchase my first boat, after shopping around for the past 6 months. I had seen lots of various boats in my price range and ended up making an offer on a 1980 Ocean Yachts trawler, 42' in length with twin DD 453s.
Grew up on boats, worked on them for many years in Alaska, but never owned my own, so this is exciting. The plan is to live aboard here in Bay Area for the next year or so, then perhaps a nice cruise back home to Alaska for the summer.
I look forward to meeting y'all...
