Torquay's life under new owners, a new manager and in a new division began in unconvincing fashion when they were held by Grays Athletic at Plainmoor.
Grays had the better of the first half and only a goal-line clearance by Torquay captain Steve Woods prevented Danny Kedwell scoring after 14 minutes.
Torquay settled after the break and Lee Phillips and Tony Bedeau went close.
Chris Hargreaves also had a chance for the home side but his 85th-minute header fizzed past the post.
