New Sailboat owner...
Purchased a Columbia 26 MK II and am diligently trying to become knowledgeable about this boat and sailing in general. Amazed at how much there is to learn! Am absolutely into the boat! What!? No holding tank!!? Where's the Jib line? You mean I have to climb up there and reattach... and the mast light is out? The bulb too!? Where's the bilge pump? The motor went out... hoist the mainsail!! How do you slow it down? We're heading toward the rocks!! Yikes!
The beginning experiences of sailing are reason to step into a forum of knowledge. I am honored to learn the rules of the sea... day by day... one step at a time. Sincerely appreciate all those wise souls out there who are unselfish enough to freely teach those who are willing to learn.
Peace and Tollerance!
