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.

Re: Hi new girl who loves working & p laying on boats!

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

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

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.
