Just bought my first boat!!

I just bought my first boat, a 20' Hunter. I know its not much compared to some, but I have to start somewhere. The hull and deck are solid, and the rigging looked good, mostly it needs cosmetics. I am so excited, can't wait to get to work on it, if all goes well i can get some time on the water in before the season is up. A little paint here, a little varnish there, next thing you know, I'll be invited to join the NYYC. I guess I should think about buying a tux......

I am going to trailer it the CT shore, somewhere between Mystic and New Haven. I have some work to do here at home(clean, paint, add some nav gear and a windex, stuff like that), then my plan is to try to get a mooring somewhere near Newport next year. this is my first boat, so i will not be ashamed to be that strange boat just sailing back and forth in some bay all day, going nowhere until i learn the ropes a little better.

Welcome aboard and even when you are experienced and greying there is absolutely nothing wrong with zig-zagging the bay all day
