My start as a sailor
« on: June 15 2022, 14:38 »
Hello all!
Well , everyone has to start one day, and now it's time for me
My plan is to sell the house and move onto a suitable sailboat and hopefully – be able to travel around in the big world one day

And as I go - I'm trying to update a sort of blog : https://sailingksf.com/

Have a read if you have time and feel for it

I looked at you website.  Keep it up!  Life is an adventure and one for you to enjoy.  Nice choice of boats.  Enjoy the process of making it yours.  I think bowthrusters are overrated and I hope that in no time you will no longer desire one, but if you really want one, you can add it.  My bet is the boat is very friendly and happy to please you.  Enjoy the journey.

Thank you - yes happy so far - some smaller things to clear up and fix.  Like land charger was not set up for GEL batteries , and some electric cables was just missing.  Like the feedback connection from battery to alternator - it was just cut ?
The autopilot electric unit is making a grinding sound, but do work ok.  Have to open it and see how it looks inside. Need some grease maybe   
But I like the boat - it will be a nice and fun time ahead.

Thank you , yes I like the start so far.   
Sitting here in the marina now - in the sun and reading for my Yacht Master B (500 GT) exam.
Bowthrusters - yes - I will learn by time , but there are situations where a lite push in the side would be nice - hehe
