Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

Hi Glen,

I will be purchasing the book to read as soon as I'm done with some of the other various books I have to read, etc...I need to spend more time reading and less time working.
I will be turning 50 in March. This summer, we will enjoy our first ever sailing season while sleeping aboard our C&C 30 MK1. Your book may have some special meaning to a guy like me. My wife and I have plans to do Island hopping or "Gunk-holing". We are new to sailing and spent last summer up-fitting the boat and getting her ready for new occupants. I have put a round 550 miles under her keel last year. That is a lot of sailing. Your book looks exciting and just the kind of read I may need. I have read many books and self-help articles in magazines and on the internet. Thanks for your story and thanks for popping in the site here with some conversation.

I'm looking forward to a good read.

Cheers!
Capt, Curt From the free sailboat S/V East Coast Lady
