Hi new girl who loves working & playing on boats!
 
Hi

My name is Robbyn I am 46 I have an Endeavour 32 ft Sailboat in Buffalo New York that I named Fragile because of the condition I found her in and my passion for stained glass.

After four years of labor and love, she is now a keeper that one day I hope to make my way south to the keys.

I have been on sailboats since I was five, my parents owned a handful of varies Catalinas thru out my life time. It saddens me that we have such a short sailing season in Buffalo NY as I ♡ every minute I have working and playing on my boat.

Hope to learn more about Bluewater sailing on here and how to prep my boat.

Hi welcome, I grew up in near Erie PA. The season is short but it is a Great Lake:) I miss the Lake !
Sounds like you have a nice boat and the ability to stick with it.
Kind Regards, Lou

Hi Robbyn,

We just got back from a nice vacation in the Keys. I can see why you want to cruise there.

When you see how close the Bahamas are, you may want to go there too.

Regards,
Brad

Hey Lou,

Erie is nice they have the Erie Dover Race each year.

I came thru two years ago via the Welland canal from Lake Ontario which gave
me many more places ie Toronto to sail to so I am still adjusting.

The lake is also very shallow and makes for interesting sailing in storms.
