Re: "The 2 happiest days of a boatowners life are..."
I bought my 1st sailboat last May. I bought my 2nd last month. I was at the marina rigging my Macgregor getting ready to put it up for sale when the guy I bought the Cal 2-27 from came over to visit. He is refitting a 37 footer. I got a chuckle out of him referring to the Cal as "our" boat.
I like my Macgregor and likely I would have kept it for at least a few years if the wife hadn't insisted that I get a bigger boat (with a real potty).
