Welcome to the asylum. Straight jacket fitting at two. Jello painting in the craft room at three.
We bought our boat a few years ago. No clue about sailing, no trailer, no truck. We just did it. It's been great. So, read like crazy. Take a class if you can afford it. Get out there!
Hi Don! Thanks for the welcome! Just came back from Maine, Camden and Rockland - sailed a custom wooden Ketch and looked at a Pearson. Ultimately I want to moor the boat in Camden. But I am torn as I want to skip down to FL in the winter to stay on her (with my GF) so who knows may end up bringing her back and forth. So I found something that seems to be kept up well and someone else added a lot of upgrades to her so that's a head start.
Anyways thanks for the encouragement! Yes I am on youtube taking lessons now...I am a quick learner.
