Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?
I was lucky to have a good job. Went to the marina to get a part for my stinkpot boat and saw a Sailfish hanging from the ceiling and took it home. Learned to sail in Lake Michigan with it. (Year 1963) Kept it for several years. Life long dream was to retire on a sailboat-I did not get to do that. The admiral refuses to sell the house and move on a boat and I probably will not go it alone. (She cooks and does laundry) I would sell all my adult toys to get a nice live aboard boat if----------------------. I do spend as much time on the Catalina-25 as I can.
