I haven't even been out on our boat yet.
I will let you know what my scream sounds like when I do.
Spent the last 8 months just checking on it from time to time, cleaning, fixing, winterizing, cleaning, fixing...
It is a 26 ft Rawson - and is a learner.
Looking forward to this summer - to LEARN to sail - it is the west coast of Canada that must be wary this summer.
I too am not a stranger to boats, 1st mate on a 40 passenger river boat for 2 summers, kayaking northern waters, SAR boat operator, even co-owned a 24ft trophy for a couple of years, but not a sailboat. Only ever been on a moving one 3 times (loved it).
Now it's my turn.
