New: does it count as sailing

New with my first boat, a Bristol Corsair 24. Does it count as sailing if this poor thing is going to spend a good deal of time on the hard being refurbed?

Mine had been sitting for a good many years when I got her, and needs a lot of elbow grease, paint and refurb to get to a splashable stage. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions, and make a mistake or two along the way. Just wanted to say 'hi' to everyone in the interim.

Thanks guys. As soon as I get this thing in the water, I'm sure it will be an adventure (well, so will the refurb). Currently the boat is at Buzzards Bay, so the Cheasapeak is a ways away yet.
Yeah, I see lots of info, and all sorts of possibilities... not only is my hull going to be a hole in the water for my cash, but a huge time sink as well. I spent last evening reading the old electric boat flame war thread, as I was pondering going electric instead of gas outboard with mine. Interesting reading here!
