Re: FIRST SAILBOAT! 1978 Pearson Ensign

Thats a pretty good deal on well known and respected boat. With normal maintenance the boat will still be worth that much 10 years from now.

I sail/race on one out of Wickford, not mine but a co workers.

Plus you can trailer it to different sailing grounds, a big advantage. So once you are comfortable with it you can take it to races where ever they may be, and even take it on a vacation. That is the big advantage of a trailer sailor, is that you can take the boat to the sailing locations, you can take it to the sound in a few hours instead of days! You can camp on it as well. (not much more than a hard tent really but enough for a weekend)
