Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

Glenn,

I really enjoyed the book. In fact, I started reading yesterday before work, read about 100 pages before I left for work, another 100 during lunch, and the rest later that night. I don't read books like yours often, but I really enjoyed it.

I'm also a self taught computer nerd, former pilot, and (attempting to be, anyway) sailor. I do have to admit, going from a world where fuel burn is measured in 10's of gallons per hour to reading a diesel burns ~1gph was a bit of a shock, I didn't know what to do with myself.

We're also restoring an old full keel, heavily displacement boat (although smaller than yours was, by a fair bit). I was surprised to hear about the water issue after everything was sealed, any idea how your boat's hull to deck joint was bonded at the factory?

Thanks for the book, it was great. I'd love to hear more about what you are doing now and in the future.
