S/V Estrellita Settlement

The sale of Vega #1354 was officially settled on 18 July.  I received the keys and documents via USPS a few days afterwards so am now the very proud new owner of a 40 year old sailing vessel.

Even with sails that are like new, a recently rebuilt engine and in fair condition cosmetically for her age I already have a long wish list of enhancements to prepare her for a 2013 Atlantic passage to Ireland, Scotland, Norway and the Baltic.

Immediate actions will be to get her USCG documentation in order, perform a full inventory, do some housekeeping and become more intimately acquainted with her handling characteristics.
