Talking My New Baba

Hi folks,

I'm finally a boat owner!
She's a 1979 Baba, and she's in her slip in League City, Texas waiting for me to go down and move aboard in mid May this year!
Can't wait!
Cheers!
Tanny

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It would be very bad luck for me to divulge the name before the registration process is complete

Thank you all,
... but alas she needs new rigging - before I go too afar afield.
But I have found - what many of you have probably said is important before - a boat that I have confidence in, and one that inspires me with her grace, solid construction and overall beauty.
I look forward to making here even better than she is!
Cheers!

Tanny, congratulations on the new boat. She's a beauty. From your description she's a boat that "spoke to you" and I know that is important. Before buying Rhythm I looked at dozens of boats in four states and 100's on the internet. Of all the boats I visited, it was the one that 'moved me' that I purchased. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I think we can agree you've chosen well. Best of luck...MGM
