voyeur finally ready to dive in
Hi everyone, my name is Jai
I purchased a 1972 CHB 34 named "patience" that I look forward to getting very close to. She was previously owned by a very hands-on commercial capt. Who used her as a liveaboard. I am not that mechanically inclined, though willing to learn. As for now, she's in good shape and ready to leave port.
I have done a fair amount of boating in Europe (I'm Dutch) but this will be my first Boat in the US.
She is currently moored in Wilmington, CA but I look forward to moving her some time in the spring to San Diego (If I can find a slip). Until then I shall take her out once a week for short sunset jaunts to keep her moving and lubricated.
Short term projects include;
rudder maintenance (very stiff right now)
medium term jobs;
one soft spot in the backdeck (front was thoroughly overhauled)
updating electronics (add radar, chartplotter and sonar)
