Pushing off from the land lubber lifestyle
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to the wonderful SailNet community. I am in the process of making the transition we're all to familiar with -- downsizing, simplifying and moving to a life on water!
My wife and I are in the process of buying a 1973 33' Morgan Out Islander that has been taken well care of here in San Diego. She is a bit older but I think she'll make a great first boat and help us get our sailing skills developed. I hear the Morgans can be slower compared to most sailboats, but the trade off is a comfortable cruise.
SailNet has really helped me learn a lot about this lifestyle and I can't wait to begin sharing my stories!
