Well we purchased the 1978 25' Hunter! Champagne had by all at the ceremony! Tammy cleaned the outside. I worked on the outboard motor with partial success, got it to run and found the carb needs cleaning; it has sat too long. Had the standing rigging checked out, the spreader tips are to be replaced along with all the standing rigging but the mainstay. I will get the outboard serviced on March 1st, in case we need to use it (I suspect new sailors as ourselves, will have no choice but to use it in and out of the marina, lol). Sailing class on March 3rd and 4th for Tammy, Tamala and myself. The rigging will be installed on the 5th. Then next break from work she will sail, woohoo! Can't wait to be bug hunting with S/V Veranda http://veranda422.blogspot.com/.
