Bought a S2 8.0B, never sailed before and she is close to splashing soon. Sailboats are a lot of work. Sand, fill, fare, paint, polish, and hopefully a lot of beer in the icebox.
Need to name her "Gold Digger"
LOL! Dude, you are only just getting started! So far you have done cosmetic stuff, wait until the real projects come up! The purchase price is just the price of admission. There is nothing cheap about owning boats.

The impulse buy has got to be the WORST way to get into boating, and is probably the single biggest source of all the abandoned and neglected boats we see. Having said that, I hope you stick with it long enough to reap the rewards that make it all worth it!
