Howdy Salt Wife,
Congrats! I am also on Barnegat Bay, up north in Brick. I just passed my 1st anniversary with my CP 19-Mk II, 1987. She is doing all I asked for on the Bay. I did not change anything the first season, except tiller clutch which I strongly recommend. And I found a great replacement main and storm jib for n this site ( thanks Phil with the junk rig).
My winter projects are leading halyards to cockpit, replacing companion way drop boards, and making a drink-throttle-phone command module on the fuel tank hatch. I use a Torqeedo 1003 electric, so this is storage area for me. I also have the galley unit installed and need to decide if it is in, or out for next year. It is kinda handy, but v-birth is only good for storage if it is in.
