Ecalibrator, now Recalibrate

    I purchased Excalibrator, a Westsail32 hull no 649 from the Ettlinger family of Underhill Vt.  in Oct 2019. Though the family was sad to sell, Carl continues to struggle with health issues and the boat was too much for his kids to take on. Carl made many improvements and kept up with maintenence over the years but the boat has been out if the water for three yrs. Consequently i am beginning the repairs and upgrades i see necessary, beginning with removing the old and obsolete electronics...I still have a shed full of parts and spares and other equipment to move from the family compound into storage, but hopefully will accomplish this before big snows arrive.. 

    I am pleased to see such an active members group and look forward to getting to know some of you as i seek your help and advice.

    Recalibrate  that's cool ,  could  mean different things . Sounds like the boat was passed on to a good new owner .

    Hope you can take Carl sailing sometime . Good news , new electronics are not as expensive as they were and also easier to install . 

    Have fun and keep us posted .

    Thank you gents.. its appeared, but still sideways as it is in my profile. Ah we minor detail.

    An update on Recalibrate progress: moved a 5x 10 storage units amount of gear to a unit near where the boat is on blocks. The former owner was a bit of a prepper..duplicate and triplicate spares and replacememts. Will begin sorting and arranging to repack stowage, lockers and drawers after cleaning and repainting each on warm days.  

    I did notice one problem with foward / reverse linkage loose or disconnected.. will need a clear warm day to lift cockpit floor to investigste further... happy holidays!!
