Afloat again (well, almost)
Sorry for the crummy phone pictures. More will be forthcoming.
Ginger is a 1983 Pearson 303, with a 13 hp Yanmar diesel inboard auxiliary, which (with its 22 gallon fuel tank) will someday, I hope, help get me to and from Maine a bit more expeditiously than I could do before. I'd rather sail than motor, but when motor you must, it's good to be able to.
I am her third owner, and the very pleasant chap from whom I bought her has had her since '84.
And yes, I spent more than I could really afford. But I'm not sorry. Not a bit sorry.
She's in Port Washington, Long Island, at the moment, and now I have to find a time to bring her round to the Hudson.
