Just got a new (to me) boat!

Well, it isn't really that exciting but I'm happy. I just got a Walker Bay 8 with sail kit for a good price off Craigslist.

We plan on keeping it at home for use on the small lakes close by since our "real" boat is in a slip almost 200 miles away. It can serve double duty and act as our dink for the mothership, too. We keep a two person kayak at the mothership so now we have options.

Mine wasn't quite as cheap as yours but it was the best I've seen around here (and I've been watching for about 4 years).

My best craigslist scores were my $100 Astra IIIB sextant and the free camper top that is on my truck!
