Hey Pete - great idea! I've been looking for a forum such as this for a long time and now here is tis'. Just to let folks know, I own a 1986 Connie #148. I bought her in 2001 on the Pautuxent. Her previous name (one of them) was Merry-Go-Round. (Anyone know anything about her?). I think she'd been around the Merry-Go-Round a few times! I bought her knowing that she needed a lot of work. But I never realized what I was really getting into. BUT....five years later and mucho' dinero' and mucho' tearo', she's finally where I've always wanted her to be. She looks good for an ol' gal. I've virtually replaced (or heavily repaired) everything (and I mean everything) on her. I turn all my own wrenches, so feel free to get in touch with me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll help if I can. I know more about 6V92's than I EVER wanted to, but it's good to gain the knowledge. I still have to turn to the pros for the more complicated stuff (boatdiesel.com is a great resource). Just finally finished installing new teak and holly flooring in my galley. It was a job but well worth it. I'll swear my galley looks 2 feet longer! Well....maybe one foot. And it's much brighter. If you want to see, contact me and I'll send a digipic. Ok, I've rattled on long enough. Oh yeah, for the first time in my life, I now keep a boat in the Annapolis area. I'm a former Aquia Creek (on the Potomac) guy. I was born and raised on the Potomac in Stafford County. Thanks for listening.
