Hi Everyone,
My husband & I began sailing last year. We had motor boats for a couple of years but unfortunately they didn't do a thing for me. We purchased a 22 foot Tanzer last season. It was a great little sturdy boat that made learning to sail quite easy. I think like most things, experience seems to be the best teacher. P had just finished his work life when we purchased the Tanzer so he was able to spend all of his summer last year learning about the boat and sailing. We decided this year that we would like something just a bit bigger that we could spend a weekend aboard and a boat with more headroom. We purchased a 1984 Hunter 25.5. We just sold the Tanzer to a new sailor who I'm sure will enjoy it as much as we did. P spends most of his days with the Hunter learning, fixing, changing, installing, etc. Sailing has become his passion. There was lots of new learning to do with the Hunter and we still have questions that we are looking for answers to and we are hoping that this forum will help us connect with other Hunter 25.5 owners that may have some answers. The Hunter has been great so far and we are looking forward to many years of sailing.

St Johns River way North - Atlantic Coast

Hello,
Started sailing when I was 12, but after joining the working world took an unwanted hiatus from sailing. My love for the sport and passion for the sea has never waivered. 8 years ago had a dream to purchase my first vessel and life these dreams. Low and behold I was granted another gift…(The son of a sailor) promptly he was named after the vessel I sought at that time and the dream was put on hold. The little guy has grown so the actions where applied to turn this dream into a reality. We just purchased a 27’ Ericson (no we did not change the boys name to Eric)…But the time has come for me now to so my children the passions that brought me so much pleasure.

I am grateful to find this site to help me get back up to speed and to share the knowledge of who share my passion.

Still researching for my first boat, looking for a trailer sailer to learn on -

Home area, such as it is, is Toledo Bend Reservoir, based on the Louisiana side.

Eventually plan to retire on a boat and cruise the Caribbean.
