This may actually happen!
Hey folks, after wanting to sail for years, I am finally only a few months away from fulfilling my dream. Took a 2 hour intro lesson last summer and am now signed up for a 3 day class I'll be taking April and May. In the meantime, I am looking at used boats. Catalina 22 or something similar, circa 1980 or so, budget 3-5k. Planning on keeping it in the water at beautiful Lake Monroe, Fl.
I have several questions, the first of which is, what exactly is a bottom job (I assume it's more than just a paint job) and how much do they cost? Should I ask that question in the maintenance forum? The Boat buying/selling forum?
And if you're wondering about my name, I'm a Judoka (Judo player) who normally posts on martial arts forums and decided to keep the same name here for simplicity's sake.
