Wink Chumin's done

Go ahead, start gigglin now for warm up exorcise. Never been sailin, but grew up on a house boat with jet boats, fishin boats, and every blowup toy a boy could have,but, no breezes. I've been truckin for over fifteen years(started when I was eighteen but,if you ask, I'm still eighteen), my gills have been scuffed by Death Valley and Vegas, smoothed by midwestern nights, finished in a fine coat of that stuff that that flows from down past Lexington, Ky.. I moved down to the Gulf Coast after katrina. I've always wanted to sail for some reason and here I am, two wrecked boats, and the heart to paddle up the Platte. Anybody got a compass. I bought an Oday 12 that was wrecked from a wonderful person that I found wondering the beach with a fine good dog, and dream. MAN THESE FOLKS ARE COOL.
Well she's just 'bout ready to spash all but the mast and sail(hep me hep me). Had a nice fresh hole in her side and some poorly patched spots that I cut down and started over right(kinda arrogant ain't it). Other than that, no cracks, blisters or other majors.
Ha Ha,next, bought a boat that I dont currently have all the paticulars on other than shes a twenty-five foot and her name was the Shady Lady out of Bay St. Louis, Ms.. She's in ROUGH shape but I'll fix her. Will get pix up this weekend. Oh,I got sails and mast with this one. They were taken down before storm.
Man, I'll take any advice I can get, not to crazy bout havin to haunt the kids or the mother inlaw. Plus it looks like I need parts.
Been wearing a new groove in the binder of my Chapman's in the sailing chapter, but, this is basic. What instructions for distruction should I be reading?
Thanks folks. Must say that I am very impressed with the sight and the veiw.
