Pushing off from the land lubber lifestyle

Hi everyone!

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to the wonderful SailNet community. I am in the process of making the transition we're all to familiar with -- downsizing, simplifying and moving to a life on water!

My wife and I are in the process of buying a 1973 33' Morgan Out Islander that has been taken well care of here in San Diego. She is a bit older but I think she'll make a great first boat and help us get our sailing skills developed. I hear the Morgans can be slower compared to most sailboats, but the trade off is a comfortable cruise.

SailNet has really helped me learn a lot about this lifestyle and I can't wait to begin sharing my stories!

Re: Pushing off from the land lubber lifestyle

Greetings & welcome, My wife and I lived aboard a 1973 Morgan Out Island from 1973 to 1985. Please note that it is not an Out "Islander". There is an Islander vessel, but that is a totally different boat. When our children were 7 & 5 we found we needed more space so we moved aboard a 1973 41' Out Island that we are still aboard. Please feel free to send me a PM with any specific questions about the 73' Morgans, as we've been living aboard them for 39 years, we can be your resource. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Yep, you're correct! I must have had some sand in my head when I posted that.

I do have many questions and will send you a PM once I get my post count up a bit more. Thanks for the warm welcome!
