Can anyone help a New Boat Owner ona custom Ketch?
Glad it worked out for you. It might feel like a setback, but when I was restoring our boat, I had cause to be almost religeously gratefull that we did not go through on buying the first boat we had fallen in love with (and that required about 10 times the work that the one we actually bought did).
This will forever be your amusing story of how you got into yachting. You can tell people about it over drinks at sunset while sitting in the cockpit of your REAL boat.
