Smile Finally bought my sailboat!

Hi everyone,

I have been reading and dreaming about sailing for a few years. Every spring, I would buy all sailing magazines I could find and surf on the web for information. Since I have very little sailing experience, I was looking for a forgiving boat to start and I settled for a 1975 Grampian 26 that I bought last week. It does not have too much work to be done on it so I hope to start sailing soon. I will also get the help of my uncle who built his own 31 footer in his garage completely himself (took him 6 years).

I am just really excited and I like reading the sailnet forums. So much to learn and nice adventures to read about.

A new and happy sailboat owner...
