I am not a live aboard cruiser, but I spend a lot of time in my 1975 Pearson 39 Yawl on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland USA. I am in the process of completely rebuilding her. 80% done with all new rigging, winches, change to Mid-boom sheeting, etc. Now considering repower options. Suggestions appreciated.

My goal is the circumnavigate the Delmarva penninsula (up the Chesapeake, C&D Canal, down the outside and in at Newport News and back up the bay), then a trip from Middle River to Bermuda and back.

I have sailed for nearly 40 years. I am now retired. Started with a Cape Dory Typhoon to a Cape Dory 25 to a Cal 2-29 to an Alberg 30 to the Pearson 39.

Cheers to all,


ps: Always willing to help anybody stuck or needing assistance in my area.
