Just bought my first boat!!!

Hi everyone,
I just purchased my first boat today. 1978 Catalina 30'. I plan to be living aboard by the end of April. I'm sure I'll be posting loads of questions while I'm figuring everything out.

Welcome Aboard

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

I bought my first boat, a C30 last October and have been living aboard in Annapolis. So far it is great!
Which boat did you buy? I looked at several in Norfolk and Deltaville.
