Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?
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)
-Snow laden economics major, sailer to be.
While I was in college I found a cheap Hobie 14 that was stored at a local yacht club (under the I-10 bridge) so it was ready to shove off into the water with little notice. I sailed every day in the summer after classes. Learned a lot and picked up a life-long passion for sailing. Start small and get something you can afford.
