So here I am, smack dab in the middle of Florida after having relocated from
land locked Kentucky 12 years ago, without a boat. Ironic as it is, owned a
few power boats in Ky when a person could get 5-6 months on the water, but
move to a year round locale and I'm stuck on land. Well, all that is about to
change, as I'm the proud new owner of a 'starter boat'; a 1979 Bayliner/US Yachts US 22 that was practically abused by it's previous owner. I've been a
passenger on a sailboat once before (not even qualified to be considered part of the 'crew') and that's about it. I know that, most importantly the boat needs to float. Outside of that, there's lots of room for improvement. I'm a big fan of listening and learning and I'm glad to have found an online community comprising of old and young salts from around the world to learn from. Once she's back to a respectable condition, I plan to spend as much time at the helm as close to shore as the keel will allow. I can already tell that this could turn into a life-long love affair as the Admiral seems to be as excited to feel the spray as I do.
