Re: First "real" boat

Welcome... I wonder what constitutes a "real boat." Every time I think I finally got one, I feel like its the next one.

Either way, welcome to the insanity.

I'd argue his C&C 25 is more boat than my S2 7.9... certainly has more of a real galley.

Re: First "real" boat

Galley is definitely there lol (new propane stove the ancient alcohol one went the way of the dodo and the galley sink isn't hooked up to the potable tank yet) so she's very much a work in progress bought her in Feb last year in NY sailed her up in July after some serious rigging and electrical work (from scratch there and it's still not done lol) no automatic bilge pump ... Yet... but I think I only needed to pump her 4 times the entire time Ive owned her very remarkably dry for a boat her age 1973..

Re: First "real" boat

Nice boat! I love mine. No plans on "upgrading", probably will die with my C&C 25. Mine is a 1976. Fits me and a couple dogs perfectly.

Re: First "real" boat

Nice boat, welcome to the forum. This is only my preference as a crusty old dude, not being a hater - You might get more interest in your posts if you write in complete sentences with periods. Easier to read than a "texting" style stream. Younger readers probably don't care. Let us know where you're sailing and what you're doing with your boat.

Re: First "real" boat

Funcrew as to punctuation I'm trying to use, desperately the tablet I was given for Christmas its not that I don't want to use punctuation and grammar I can't get it to show up on the touch screen.. As far as using the boat she is currently on the hard across the harbor waiting on bottom paint a new outboard and seacocks ( her old ones being gate valves... Not to be trusted) and for my general usage of the boat near coastal regional cruising. Thinking about a dickenson diesel heater but will be starting a thread about that if I can't find one.


By the way a fart is only as old as its smell.... So you may be younger than you think lol

Re: First "real" boat

Forgot to mention that most of my sailing happens around the coast of New England and in particular the south shore of Cape Cod, Nantucket to Block Island. Once and a while I do go beyond that New York to northern Maine but rarely
