Dear Friends and Fellow South Coast Owners,
I have already been getting a great response from other SC owners and enthusiasts, in reference to the R/R/R (repair, replace, rehab), not to mention U/M (Upgrades & Maintenance) information contained within this web site. I want to thank you for how well received this web site has been (This was my first web site attempt).
I know that there are many of us out there that have been going down the same roads that I have been year after year. I think that as a group, we have picked up many insights, through trail and error, about how to deal with problems presented to us by a twenty or thirty something year old sailboat. If you feel that you have an experience, insight or story that you would be interested in sharing with other SC owners, please feel free to e-mail me the information that you have to contribute. I would be glad to incorporate any relevant information and or content to the knowledge base that is this web sight.
