Well, TECHNICALLY, no boat. Until Saturday.
We're picking up a "practice boat" Saturday morning, doing some work on it and putting it in a lake in the spring after we finish some classes.
The boat is a 1979 MacGregor Venture 25. It needs a bit of work, but it's intact and pretty clean.. ok, well, a bachelor owned it, it needs cleaning too... but it's in sailable condition right now. It's just getting to the point here in Colorado I don't think I want to take it out just yet.
As I pointed out in my sign in message, I am not a sailor (and I think I mentioned that in some other messages too....) - I'm an "Airman" - or was, retired. I've been around boats a lot - and been on sailboats, but never actually sailed one. There's some more information in the introduction forum in my thread I started.
