Trav,

Best wishes with the boat! I too, am new to sailing. I purchased a 13' Chrysler Lone Star this summer. I have only been out in it four times so far. I am looking foward to spring! My advice? If the previous owner of your boat thought that it would be "cute" to use an axe handle as a tiller, make sure that you replace that with something long enought to allow you to reach the tiller and the jib sheets at the same time!!
