Want to go sailing in Oriental, NC this Wed???

I may be crazy for offering to do this but....

A friend of mine and i are going to be sailing in Oriental on Wed and if you are interested in going... and not a total freak (a little bit is ok ) then you are welcome to go with us. Send me a PM.

Warning: No politics, religion or other crap like that will be discussed... just plain ol sailing!!!!!! I doubt there will be any complaints about that though.

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.

Perfect!
Joel,
I would like to take you up on this offer the next time we are in town. We just finished a house in Oriental, actually the house has been done for several months, we just added the dock. It is on one of the local creeks off the Neuse. But we are currently still located in NJ where our children and grandchildren are. We get down there every couple of months for a week or so at a time. Probably will not be down again until after the holidays.

I am looking for a boat to buy, I have only chartered (out of Annapolis) so far. And naturally, I am also looking for recommendations from people who sail in the area. Based on our location (shallow creek and wind tide issues) it will need to have a centerboard and something in the 28-30' range for comfortable weekend (or longer) trips to Cape Lookout and the surrounding area. My short list includes: Beneteau 323, Island Packet 31, Bristol 31.1, and a Nimble 30 Yawl(great looking boat but not sure about this rig for the area). Any and all comments or suggestions are welcome.

regards,
CapnRon47
