My First Boat
Learned to sail when I was 16 and a counselor at a boy's camp in Canada, had a blast on that cold lake.
Bought my first sailboat at 25 (1974), a Lido 14 for just $400. She was old and had a fouled bottom with some plant growing from the centerboard trunk. I got a trailer for her and fixed her up and sold her that fall for $1200. Bought a used Clipper 21 for $1500 ($300 more) and sailed that for a few years and then bought a Seafarer 22' in 1978. Sailed her for 29 years and bought an '81 Catalina 27 winter of 07. I sail her all the time. I will be 60 in February and I am sure my family is giving me a "big boat" for my birthday (but I am not holding my breath!)
Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.
