Re: How do you use your boat

I bought a 1972 c&c 30 mk1 last year ( yup I bought robs hand me down!)
I keep it in noank on a mooring not far from robs new boat ( someday destined to be mine) . As it is our first boat period it has been used for day sails and spending weekends and summer vacation on her. Everything has been a first or new experience! Dealing with currents, learning to tie off the halyards so as not to slap against the mast at night, figuring out how much beer is needed when sitting on the mooring all day, calling for a pumpout, watching the sunrise,
Listening to the boat cut through the water.....wish I had done this years ago!
Next year we will venture farther away, long island is on the list as is block island( I owe someone a drink or two when there).
