Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat
Smackdaddy: Serenity was a Downeaster 38, cutter rig, made in Santa Ana CA in 1977. I bought her as an extremely dilapidated vessel - if I had known HOW dilapidated, I would have tried for a lower price!

And don't worry about the grilling you'll get here by the esteemed SN members. There's no way for you to win. Everybody knows everything on a forum - we are always hypothetically perfect in our sage advice while at the dock.
It's just the stuff that happens out there that causes us concern.
