Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I started sailing about 4 years ago, but grew up in and on the water. In late January 2013, I bought a Freedom 38. No partner. It needed a lot of work, some of which I did myself and other stuff I hired out. A couple of weeks ago, I motor-sailed it with 2 friends north from San Diego to San Francisco. At times, when I'm trying to think too many steps ahead, it can seem overwhelming -- almost terrifyingly paralyzing -- so I just don't let my mind go that way. The best parts though are the feelings of accomplishment and constant learning, and the love I have for this "new" boat that the broker had labeled as "deferred maintenance."
