Thumbs up hello all

request permission to come aboard?

just doing some research on possibly getting a boat this year. i have some sailing skills, but that was many years ago. my folks owned a few boats - largest being a 28" grampian. need to see if the wife will be able to get her head wrapped around the art and lifestyle of wind power as we have always owned motorboats.

definitely looking at a good course and see where that takes us. we are empty nested, early 50s and both in excellent health. i am already looking at 30 footers. can't see starting much smaller, as i know she will want the amenities... as will i.

might go look at a 1983, one owner, pearson 303 tomorrow... just a look!

y'all have a great site here for info and i appreciate all the abounding knowledge. i also have some pretty savvy sailing friends at work. i appreciate you letting me hang around - i'll try to behave.

alex

Welcome to Sailnet Alex, it's a great site. Don't listen to the crazy Portugese and best of luck with the search.

You're welcome Alex, glad to have you. No, everyone is not as nice here as me. But if you find someone who isn't as nice as me just PM him, that'll piss him off. Or give him a negative rep point eh.
