Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?
So starting to really think I need to get a boat and just sail over doing all these courses, but being a full time student, money is an issue.
How did you come to take ownership of your first boat, and what do you suggest for someone looking to get their first? (Still want a contessa 26 or 32)

Lived on half of what we earned and saved the other half. S'worked for us for 50+ years...
