What happened to the string we had going? Seems like it has been deleted from Sailnet.
Wish I still had some of the email addresses of the participants, it was getting interesting.

Anyway, I''m still looking for and enjoying advice from other sailors (male and female).
As a "newbie" I''m very excited about sailing, but need all the insight I can get.
Eventually I want to liveaboard. Any other single folks have any advice to offer about that? Any good books that you enjoyed, that helped you with your adventure?

I hope to go to the Sail Only boat show in Miami in February, but don''t know yet if that will be possible.

Take care!

Wildheart

Yes, what did happen to it? Did you read the message I sent you? If not, is Wildheart the name of your boat? I am a liveaboard in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. I have a Douglas 32 and do a lot of singlehanding. If I have company its usually one of my daughters or a friend.

Love to correspond more, hopefully this string keeps going!

No, Wildheart is not the name of my boat (only because I haven''t been lucky enough to buy one yet).

I''m seriously looking at a Catalina 30, and will likely make some decision in the next couple of weeks.

With this cold, dreary weather in Georgia, it''s nice to dream about being somewhere warm,out on the water.

This will really be a new adventure for me, one I''m very much looking forward to.

Hope to talk to you soon.

hi wildheart..also a new sailor living in iowa..buying my first boat this year and also have some grand ideas for living on the water in the future..lived on the ocean all my life and then got bit by the bug here in a land locked area..but where there is a will is a way!

Do you know anything about precision boats..that is what i am looking to buy. I hear they have great resale value in case i want to move up in size..it is an 18 footer..room enough for weekends with my two boys 5 and 8. So let me know how you are and if you bought your catalina..i hear they are a good boat..a lot of them out there! take care, Erika...

Erika: Hello from Georgia. No, I don''t know anything about precision boats. I am very much in the learning stage on all of this, even though I''ve wanted to be involved in it for many years. What kind of boat do you have (or what are you planning to buy)? Where will you be sailing?

You are lucky to have your two kids to sail with you. What fun! They''ll always remember the good times you have on the water together.

And Holly, I''m sorry I didn''t respond sooner, I''ve been out of town on business this week. How I wish I could have learned to sail when I was as young as you are. Does your family have a boat? Where do you go sailing? Do you have brothers and sisters to sail with?

Take care!

Wildheart

I sail in the Peconics on Long Island, NY and have sailed my Newport to Bermuda, Bahamas, Florida, and one of the trips up from Florida has been written in Sailing Magazine....It''s a comfortable riding boat and the 10''6" beam keeps the Newport on its feet in high winds.
