Ten years and Thank You to SaiNet

Hey,

Ten years ago I bought my first sailboat. Shortly after that I joined SailNet because I had A LOT to learn.

Since then I have become totally hooked on sailing. I gained much needed experience on that little Catalina 22 and since moved up to a Newport 28 and then to my current boat, an O'day35 (purchased in 2006).

I have made a lot of friends (both on SailNet and in the 'real' world) and had a lot of great times. I'm looking forward to much more of both in the future.

Thanks to all.

Barry

Oops, missed my anniversary by a couple of months. Thanks Sailnet.

Back then it was a '76 Pearson 28-1, then in 2006 came the Ericson 35-3 and in 2010 the Caliber 40LRC.

Re: Ten years and Thank You to SaiNet

Wow 10 years.... Nice 2 foot itis you got there... or is that 6 foot itis... geesh

Yep I've been here since 2007... Funny as I'm pretty sure I lurked around for quite a while before I joined too. Back then I only had a Capri 14.2 (and had it for like 5 years)... but I upgraded in smaller increments... To a Capri 22, then now to the Capri 25. I've probably hit the plateau though as with the exception of a J/80 or Left Coast Dart I am likely done for now. I like our little lake (as it's close to me), and we are only late spring to early fall, and the boats have to be out. That means I have to trailer it, which means a LOT of work for my 4' fixed keel to haul out. Anything much bigger I would NOT be able to store inside to work on the boat (in winter) as well.

Regardless 10 years is a good run at it... and sounds to me like you've upgraded nicely over the years. I've been on an Oday 34, but not the 35... I was impressed with the build quality though, but then that was back in the 80s, they were still young (as was I).

I hope I can say something similar in 8 years.
