New from Jacksonville, Florida...
Hello from Jacksonville, Florida. New to sailing (previously a power boater) my wife Cam and I just bought a 38' 1982 Cheoy Lee Ketch. The original owner I assume has passed away and though the boat is in need of TLC her history came with it. Sapphire is her name and we hope to restore her to previous glory this year. I'll most likely be asking advice here a lot.
We're just months away from being "empty nester's" and I'm retired from the boat repair business. My wife is a few years behind me so I figure by the time I refit the Sapphire and learn to sail her we both have plans for distant islands. Looking forward to meeting new friends and visiting new places.
