Not sure how my post got deleted. But I will repost. It is with regret that I've decide to abandon my Alberg 30 project. Just too many memories.
I've decided to move forward with becoming a full time liveaboard.  This week I purchased a Westsail 32.  She will become my new home. I plan on moving aboard by the end of the year. I will start a new blog as well.

Don't take the accidental delete personally.
Dumb butt here (me...not Charlie) has deleted great posts by both Adam "Godot" and Kurt "Capt K" in the past.
It happens...
Great looking boat!
You should start a separate thread about acquiring her and moving aboard.
And yes...more pictures!!! 😄

Welcome to the Westsail club.  Hope you can get your other boat sold and move aboard soon.  Hope to see you bobbing off Hospital point I we make it South this winter

Congrats, Kevin, on a good looking boat.

Also looking forward to seeing another W32 out on the water! It would be great to go for a sail with you next time I'm in Virginia Beach.

The Cape Dory is in but the first sail ended with a steering issue. Working on fashioning a new bigger key.

Wow what a quick Summer! Dorothea is getting hauled out tomorrow and so begins the Fall/Winter work list. It was a blast!

Boat looks good Kev.
Yup, summer is coming to a close up this way.
But you know, so many down south don't use their boats during the summer cause it's to dam hot.
I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Sorry, folks, I almost never log onto this site anymore. But here I am: Crème Brûlée was sailed from her mooring to the local boat yard on Sunday, stripped the next day. She awaits haul-out, which is scheduled for Oct. 31. Had an eerily beautiful, mile October and a very nice September. Spring and most of the summer was not all that great for sailing on Buzzards Bay.

Best to all,

Good to hear from ya!
Seems most of the NE was like that...crappy spring-early summer but beautiful ending to the season.
Hope your haulout goes smooth.
I’m hauling out late next week too...
Any adventures from last season to share?
Have fun
