yes, it was a beautiful evening in The Thorofare...

Re: What made you buy your boat?

Something crazy to do in our retirement. LOL

The boat just kind of showed up, we bought her, and can't wait to head off into the sunset. Looking forward to many exciting days and nights!

I am really looking forward to learning All things mechanical and electrical. Always good to learn new tricks.

Re: What made you buy your boat?

My first boat purchase was inspired by the Free Yacht Saga on Instructables.com. My brother and I were basically looking for something floating we could get as cheaply as possible, so we ended up with the 1984 Starwind 27 for $1,000.

Four years later, my girlfriend and I had a long list of things we had learned we wanted after spending every weekend on the Starwind. Mainly things like, a higher ceiling, a sink that isn't recessed under an overhand that causes you to hit your head, a refrigerator, etc. The whole list is here: Gimme Shelter: Our boat shopping wish list

Then my girlfriend just got trigger happy and insisted on buying the first boat we looked at, an O'day 34.

We'll see how it works out.

Last month we bought a Watkins 27. You do the math.

Should be good for 9 years. The next boat should be Watkins 36

Re: What made you buy your boat?

Well the boat we have now we bought from friends who moved up. We got it for what I think was a good price. Our little Hunter is easily trailerable and has a centerboard for getting into shallow water and launching at questionable ramps. It's pretty roomy inside for a little boat and should serve us well until we decide to move up, if we do. I like the way she looks and sails and I've set her up for single handing, still need to get a tiller pilot (On the list for this year).
