Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Hi imasaluki! Are you ready for the snow? Heard you are to get around 3". We are not expecting anything our way as we are too far south. We live about 30 miles to the Tenn border.

Good luck to you and your sailing, as well. Once we get settled in the boat good, then this winter we'll really start studying the books, working on our knots, etc. Yay!!

Happy Holidays!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Greetings from Kentucky as well. Really new to sailing myself, have a lot to learn and really looking forward to it. Cave Run will be my sailing grounds as well. Dreaming big here but hoping to visit the east coast at least 2 times this year with a trip to the keys next January or February! We see how that goes. Tell us how did you get the sailing bug? Not sure where it comes from living in Ky but it sure does appeal to me. Ever been sailing on the ocean? Congrats on your new adventure!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

IronSpinnaker go to college there? Spent many a day hunting around Cave Run Lake when I was in college at MSU. Have done quite a bit of Horseback riding there as well. Never did get out on the water the 4 years of college I was there. Hard to do when you are a brokeass with no money to buy a boat or any friends with one. Hunted lot out around what we called the Goose Ponds. Backside of lake we hunted primitive weapons area. Fished off the banks and spillway some.

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Good morning, Kyhillbilly!! I am so glad there are so many of us here. And, all new to sailing. How fun!!

Kyhillbilly - you ask how we got into this, and if we have ever sailed on the ocean. Well, long story is...I've always wanted a boat, always, but, marriage, child, work, got in the way and we did other things. And while we went camping at lakes during the summer, or motor boated on friends boats, we never thought we would have one of our own.

We have taken many, many cruises in the Caribbean, and taken quite a few sailing charter trips. But, only as a paid customer, never to where we actually handled the boat/sails ourselves. There is nothing like being on the water. Nothing!

So, 2 yrs ago, my sil & bil bought a sailboat and have spent 2 years working on it, getting ready to head to the Caribbean and up & down & around, wherever they want to go, they'll go. This past Sept, or late Aug, I forget, they told us about a sailboat for sale, we finally looked at it in early Oct, had it surveyed and bought it Oct 15. So, thanks to them, we are now sailboat owners and have something to do during our retirement. That's our story and we are sticking to it! Ha!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Good for you two. Know what you mean about the draw to the water. Never could understand how me being from Eastern Ky I would have the sailing bug, its what dreams are made of! I have always been a daydreamer add sailing to the mix, its like throwing gasoline on a fire. Your in-laws are living my dream. Know what you are saying about life getting in the way. Gotta say the kids are worth it though. Job if didn't have to have one I wouldn't. Columbia 8.7, looks like you have a good boat. So what are your long term plans? Planning on taking her to the coast someday or learning the ropes and moving on to bigger things?

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Magnolia, I think we got 3 mm of snow. Just bought a 17' O'Day Daysailer II last night in Louisville. Good enough to learn on and I think I'll really enjoy this little boat. Now for some warmer weather!
