Hello, salty cruising folk. My name's Anton, I've sailed coastally weekends but no long distance cruising, and the '77 'Cherubini' Hunter 27 I bought as a "TLC Special" and presently live aboard in South Florida is my biggest boat yet...and given my financial prospects, one I'll likely be sailing for quite a while. Determined to get it in shape and take it for a LD 'shakedown' sometime in Spring '08. Still got a ways to go in learning and preparation. I'm sneaking up on 50yrs of age and I ain't getting any richer or damn the torpedoes.

I'll probably be doing more reading than contributing for a while, but I'll pipe up now and again so you know I'm still

Hi Anton,

Welcome! Feel free to ask any questions you want answers for. There are not too many places in the world that a well found 27 footer can't go.

Best wishes

Hi and welcome>/smile.gif I am new here too and really don't know the first thing about sailing - yet. But, I will. And this is a great place to learn.

We're in the Venice area. Just wanted to toss my "howdy" out there for ya. Stick around and have a great time.

And a hearty "welcome aboard" from me too, Anton - enjoy your stay.

Hi Anton,

As others have said, "Welcome".

I am sure you will find this forum a useful source of konowledga and inspiration. Feel welcome and free to ask for any advice you need. There are many very knowledgable people contributing to this friendly forum.

I too am the exceedingly proud owner of a 27 feet l.o.a. monohull. Nausikaa is solid and seaworthy and capable of undertaking almost any voyage. A sister ship sailed from Sweden to Australia and another has crossed the Atlantic no less than 6 times. IMHO, better a small, solid seaworthy boat than a floating gin palace. Also, from a point of view of seaworthiness, better a smaller boat which you can afford to maintain well than a larger one which is lacking in maintenance due to economic constraints.

One of my main reasons for having a 27 footer is that I can choose to sail her myself or take a crew along. She is not too big for solo-sailing and not too small to have space for a couple of friends either.

Enjoy your sailing and enjoy this forum

Aye // Stephen

Thanks for the generous and friendly welcome! As soon as the apron strings to the dock are cut, I'm definitely emigrating to become an Atlantean...they are the friendliest people
