my wife and I are high school sweethearts. I have grown up with motorboats. I sailed some when i was a kid ( sunfish, Hobie cats, and flying scotts).
we have a small 17' powerboat, and this year we were talking about how nice it would be to have something we could overnight on and head to the cape for the weekend. She then said she had never been to cape lookout... I was dumbfounded. We have spent countless hours out in boats. Icould not believe that I had never taken her.. 12miles away, and never took her....I promised to take her the next weekend.
I had heard of this "deal" on a 66 sagitta 30. I bought the boat and surprised her with it the next friday. I was so worried that she would freak out and I would be sleeping on the boat...LOL..
She loved it and thought that it was the sweetest thing that I bought HER a sailboat....
We have gone out as much as possible and she loves the boat. She was nervous about heeling, but now is fine with it....
wh have traveled to St. Thomas, St.Martin, cancun, cozumel, key west, and a few islands in the bahamas..... now we are flirting with how to get time off work to take OUR boat down there........
