Willdadd-

Is this a Contessa 32?? As for how much experience is required... I'd highly recommend working your way up to it... start by daysailing, and then weekend, and make progressively longer voyages, and move progressively further from shore.

You could get the experience you need in the year it will take you to prep the boat... provided you're pushing your experience progressively further as you go along.

There's a difference between 20 years experience and a first year's experience repeated 20 times.. If you don't keep pushing a bit... you'll end up with the latter, not the former.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
