evening all

British expat, lived and worked around the world, finally settled in the good old US of A. Been a longggggg time wanna be boater, finally have the means and am working on convincing the wife that THIS.....THIS will be the best waste of time and money yet
Lots and lots of questions, first thing I have to do is get the family wet and out on the water!
Been lurking here for a few months, love the atmosphere in here and look forward to asking a millions already asked questions

Re: evening all

thanks guys, booking sailing lessons for the daughter and I this spring.
she's 7, her brother is 3!!! I'm thinking about a dingy big enough for me the wife and the kids at first, my eye is really on a beneteau 34, but that's a year away at best.
Got to get the wife "onboard" first,lol
my real issue is living in the frozen norrth east, I just don't see the fun in sailing round NY, jeebus, I try to avoid driving round it

Hey! Some of us have brains, too.

CaptainMayhem, welcome aboard! My boys are 7 and 4 (soon to be 5). I see that you're a little northwest of me. Where will you be doing your local sailing? We're going to be on Peace Valley using an old Albacore that I picked up on Craigslist for cheap. Our "big boat" will be out on Barnegat Bay this summer, if I can get her there.

Nockamixon, then somewhere down around MD for the cruising I hope.
Looking hard for a boat right now, 32-34' really like the look of the beneteau's inside and out.
But will end up with what ever fits the wallet I'm sure.
last time I sailed was my honeymoon, took the wife out on a hobby cat,lol
I swear the wrinkles have yet to clear from her face, we did actually submarine the thing, caught a wave and it just went down right up to the tiller. Bobbed back up straight away but that was the end of that fun,lol
Now I get to do it with a seven year old who has no concept of dancing with the wind. can't wait
