First boat!

Hi all- glad to be on sailnet and super stoked on my first sailboat (a Newport Kite). Thanks to all who post on these forums. There's so much to learn and I'm having a great time reading the posts.

Below is a pic from the maiden voyage. Bought her in Nevada and the pic is on Lake Mead. Just got her home to Pismo Beach and looking forward to getting out on the ocean. Figure I'll put in some more time at a local lake first to boost my skills and confidence level.

Thanks again to everyone for the advice and info on these forums.

Looking good on the water & the view isn't to shabby !The water around here looks a lot harder than yours: Might have something to do with the temp?--Dale

Looks good from a distance, but needs some serious care; paint, mast sanded and varnished, and, and, and . . . Looks like a I have an ongoing project for the next several months and I'm looking forward to it. Tons of fun to sail though and glad to finally have my own sailboat. Never sailed in a dinghy before and it is a whole new world. Even just the slightest tiller input or sheet adjustment has instant effect. Try and stay warm up there in the frozen tundra!

Looks like a nice boat. Reminds me of my first, it was a super snark sears edition. Fun, light, and easy to sail.
