The dream is still afloat, this time with a new boat!

Proud new owner of a westsail 28, I am hoping 2nd times a charm She needs a little bit of elbow grease but nothing I can't handle.

Quite different then the contessa, Its amazing to just about have standing headroom. Not quite as fast as most, but Im not planning on being in a rush. Going to pick up a second job during the winter to build the funds back up for some refitting. Back to being poor and thrifty, Gotta love boat ownership

If you haven't already, check out Project Bluesphere. He started his sailing adventures on a Westsail 28. Entertaining at least.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I have checked out projectbluesphere and his videos on youtube in the past, although he recently got a different boat and changed his website. The westsail association has a great wealth of information also though.
