Hello everyone, obviously this is a whole new world for us but it's what we have always wanted to do.We recently(as in 8/10/09) bought our first boat a Tanzer 8.5 (Circe),we live in key west and are very eager to start learning everything we can about this new lifestyle.We have been researching sailing and living aboard for years,then in period of about 2 weeks we moved out of our apt. and onto our new boat,it's taking a little getting used to but we truly love being on her and can't wait to start getting some time sailing under our belts. We have to very dear friends who are avid sailors(they have a 45' Gulfstar) and are more than willing to teach and help us in any way possible.Anyway we just wanted to say hi and to ask if there is anyone who knows anything about the Tanzer 8.5,there doesn't seem to be alot of info about them(not that i can find anyway).Not wanting to know anything specific yet just some opinions about these boats.Thanks in advance for any info and help.The previous owners took great care of the boat and did extensive upgrades on her,press. cold water,new teak interior,all new electrical upgrades,new top plates,etc. to many to list. thanks again and hope to hear from some of you soon.
