Thought I would introduce myself; Dennis living in Apollo Beach Fla, near Tampa. With a empty dock outside
Lot's of power boat experience very little sail however did own a Pearson 28 for a while- way back when...
Really miss the short destination cruising overnights; long weekend kind of stuff. Don't miss the high cost of fuel and the noise of power boating.
Wife is open to the idea of sailing, since she really doesn't like fast anyway; but also doesn't like the heel of a monohull.
Solution seems to be a Cat; so my question to this esteemed crew is which Cat should it be; one we can learn on, but as the skills improve so would our ventures. Of course to ensure we will both enjoy this new sport/hobby, it wouldn't be prudent to spend a lot of monies until we really know what we want and how ultimately we will use her.
So your input would very much appreciated; and as mentioned on a previous post would love to find someone to train in the Tampa Bay area on our new what ever she will be Cat.
Keep the winds to your back;
Dennis & Lynda
