Re: Getting into sailing

I wish I had some more sailing experience before rebuilding my current boat. I got it for free and put about $5000 worth of parts and materials along with well over 200 hours of my labor. Took it down to the fiberglass hull and re framed and fitted the interior / exterior. The boat is worth what I put into it but there are many things I would have done differently if I had the experience that I have just 3 short years later. I also had an awesome time doing it but wish I had just spent the cash on something that was ready to sail.
