We are the proud new owners of a 1981 Seafarer 26. Purchased on Friday morning and spent three wonderful days on Lake Champlain. We're taking baby steps and spending a lot of time on the boat while not under sail. At the mooring, motoring, anchoring or just drifting, making sure it's a lot of fun for our 3 year old son, Grady. He can get himself up and down the swim ladder, which is great. My wife is new to sailing, so I think it's important that everyone get comfortable with the boat before we do any serious sailing. We did sail on just the 150 genoa a couple of times and that was great. Plan to have dinner on the boat after work tonight and do some swimming.
Here's my boy about ready to jump back in the lake.
