First Boat !

Hi all,

thanks for all your help over the last year or two answering a newbies questions with patience and understanding. We just bought our first boat, an Ontario 28. She's old, but well maintained and with many upgrades and a beaut.
The family and I are looking foreward to many great adventures on the west end of Lake Erie and thence, who knows. Funny, we looked at many other boats, travelling here and there, this one was right under our noses and was never even advertised, just word of mouth.....anyhow, thanks again, have a great Holidays,and here's to the spring !!!.

Congrats... great boats. We owned a Viking 28 built by Ontario Yachts for a decade... really enjoyed it.
