Seems like an active group judging from the postings. Been looking forward to getting into sailing for some time, but spouse not a "boat person". A friend had a 30 catalina for sail at a very attractive price in a down market, and after a few visits on it the wife thought it worth a try. Not at all like her prior boating experiances on small outboards as a youngster. So some classes later and in our second season, she still goes out with me! Active with boats in my early years, now the kids grown, time to do something for me. Friend said I could buy her boat if I took her sailing, and she wanted someone who would treat her (the boat) right. Right place at the right time. Turnkey no brainer, even came with a slip and beer in the cooler!
