Re: Buying a 30-40 year old boat - your opinions
When you see the right boat you will know it is right for you. When I first saw my boat I knew it was the one for me. At 45, she is still beautiful. Every time I go out in Nellie Belle, I get a thumbs up from another boater or someone comments on how good the boat looks. I love my boat.
"You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home."
