West Coast Santa Barbara Forum newbie here

Great forum here with great people so Thank you all for the information I have already learned poking around before I was even registered. I hope to learn much more and I hope I can return the favor(s) in the future.

I am an old school Captain, in fact when I got my 200 ton license back in the 80's I was the youngest Captain on the coast. I have learned lots and hope to learn more. Of course I too have many what I "think" are great stories as most of us Sea Dogs do.. especially when you throw in the mixture of a fisherman.

My stories range from Long range sport-fishing deep into Mexico to diving in the beautiful Channel Islands.. In fact my fist job here in Santa Barbara was as the 2nd Captain on the now famous "Concepcion"(RIP - 1 yr anniversary coming up 9/2/20)

Other stories range from working in the film industry to crossing the Atlantic ocean on a (Trawler) named Lady Grace.. she was the picture boat for the film The Perfect Storm and the sister ship of the famous Andrea Gail that is no longer a float.

I am in the hunt for my dreamboat, Californian 34 and would most appreciative any tips or guidance some of you may have on my soon to be purchase... I will be searching all the data I can find in this forum from all you helpful experienced Captains.

I hope I can bring value here.. but for now I am just a Sea Sponge.

Ohh and if I may ask..Keep your eye n ears open for a Californian 34 for sale. (West Coast)
