Talking Hello from Texas

Man am I excited about finding this forum.

First let me give y'all some info about myself. I'm 25 years old living just south of the DFW metroplex at the moment. I've always been a huge fan of 17th and 18th century history, especially the pirate era (they were my bedtime stories as a kid). So naturally I always wanted to go sailing. About a year ago I met a man who took me on his boat and showed me a few things and I've been hooked ever since.

I am currently in the process of saving for my first boat. By the time February comes around and income tax hits I should be looking somewhere in the $5k-$6k price range. Been looking at a 31' seafarer yawl on craigslist for some time now and got my fingers crossed that fate is keeping her for me.

I hope to buy a boat and start living on the sea, so this forum will be a huge asset in the years to come, and I am looking forward to it!

Re: Hello from Texas

Hi Christopher,
Welcome to the Sailnet community. I live in grand Prairie and am working on getting a Venture 17 back on the water after the keel pivot broke a couple years ago. You have large ambitions and probably want to get onto the open seas with the ship you are wanting to captain. But if you ever want to put around Joe Pool with me, give me a shout.

Re: Hello from Texas

Hi,

Congrats on your plans.

I lived aboard for a full year, and earlier sailed out of Rockport TX.

You might look for a good priced boat on two sites : Sailingtexas.com and sailboatlistings.com.

I have owned 4 boats so far, finding them on these sights, and their prices were : 5,000, 3,000, 3,000, and 4,900. You can find some terrific boats on these sites, from very expensive, to good, to fixer-uppers.

Fair Winds Always, Gregg

HI there!

Hope you'll made it. I just started sailing after 25 years wind surfing.
