Hi djom, Welcome to the forum. You will find many like minded sailors here, it is a friendly place to hang out and share your experiences with your sailing.
Congratulations on your new purchase. Quebec City is a lovely place to be based, and I am envious of that St Lawrence Seaway. I have driven along parts of it on the way from Ontario, through Quebec and on to the Maritime provinces. Wished I had a boat there. How far can you go upstream?
You will find lots of interesting and informative information on the various boards here. Most are timeless, and many apply to many different models where the same systems are used, so spend a few quality evening hours, reading on all the topics which interest you.
We all look forward to hearing about your experiences.
Thanks a lot for the welcome, rene460 ! 1st year we will go to Saguenay River (fjord), then we intend to go down to Anticosti island, Gaspesie and Iles de la Madeleine. Later we would go North to "basse côte-Nord" (will need to tarnslate this). And even later to New-Foundland West (strait of Belle-Isle). I already found this forum useful, as it directed me to Rig-Rite to replaced a missing water deack fill cap!
Thanks for the welcome. I am hoping to get my new 795 model 2020 delivered in the coming weeks in Istanbul. Your shared photos and information exchanges have been quite useful to me to develop ideas for possible additions. After tests the boat shall be based in the south in Marmaris. I am going to try to install a kicker engine and solar power. The engine is Evinrude 200 hp. This is mainly because the distributer here is also the Evinrude distributer in Turkey. There is no change in the model itself. There is also optional roof rack available. Wish they think about doing something about installing a kicker engine, by making changes in the swim platform on the port side. This may be possible if you make the swimming platform smaller, as was in the older models. With my best regards to all forum members.
I'm from Perth Western Australia. Bought a 2005 Sun Odyssey 37 in September last year and have been enjoying a great summer of sailing. We have consistent afternoon sea breezes that are usually around the 18 - 22 knot mark.
Found this site after a bit of Googling in relation to a suspected leaking rudder seal (I suspect I have one as I'm getting a little bit of water in the central cavity after use and I've traced the water flow to somewhere in the rear).
Guess that is the famous Fremantle doctor breeze!
Hope you get your rudder issue fixed, although frustrating not a complex job, but do ask for advice here and share your experiences when sorted. The SO37 is a great boat
