Cool Free at Last Step 1

Hi all
New to the forum & just wanted to introduce myself.
I am new to sailing - Our last Kid just left the house
So with retirement within sight - I completely freaked my husband out and said - Babe - lets sell everything and get us a big ole sailboat and takeoff!!
After he picked himself up off the floor - he was like I'm in...

Now before you all heave that collective sigh going "oh no green horns on the sea - get the name of their boat they'll be on storm stories for sure .."
Fear not my husband grew up sailing the Great Lakes & is currently restoring a Santana 30 - we are having the Can't take it with you Garage Sale this weekend and then moving next weekend to a place that the rent is about the same as it was when we got married 20 something years ago. The rest of the cash is going in the boat fund - while we wait out actual retirement date.

Just wanted to say Hi - get connected as I'm sure I will have tons of questions upcoming.....

Glad to be here
Feedin that Gypsy Spirit or is that Pirate Spirit Hmmmm
