First Post On Sailnet!!!

Hello everyone!

I've been browsing the forums for some time now as my wife and I have been dreaming of owning a sailboat for years now. I've always found the information here helpful. So, last Saturday we purchased our first sailboat! An Ericson 27.

We bought it in Portland Oregon where we'll keep it for now. Over the next few years we hope to get her ship shape and ready for cruising.

I'm sure I'll be using the forum a bunch now so... Hello!

-Sean

Welcome! An Ericson 27 is a good choice for a first sailboat.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
