It is a learning curve!! Loving every minute of it, will cruise till I run out of money or sink

And the picture of my sexy contessa! The keel on that baby will see you safe in the biggest oceans.

I'm relatively new at this, but isn't it normal to spend a little time getting to know your boat before you attempt to cross an ocean on her?
