|johnshasteen||Welcome aboard, and don't say you "settled for a Grampian 26", you've got yourself a really nice boat. For years a friend of mine right down the dock had a Grampian 26, he loved the boat.|

Congrats, concur on priorities - fix for sailing, sail, buff and polish during down time.
My first boat was a Grampian 26, it's a forgiving boat.

Let's see some pictures, shall we?
Also, one bit of advice, if I may....
Summer is short. Get the safety and operational problems fixed and start sailing her as soon as you can. Worry about the cosmetic stuff later. Don't waste the summer!

Finally bought my sailboat!
I have been reading and dreaming about sailing for a few years. Every spring, I would buy all sailing magazines I could find and surf on the web for information. Since I have very little sailing experience, I was looking for a forgiving boat to start and I settled for a 1975 Grampian 26 that I bought last week. It does not have too much work to be done on it so I hope to start sailing soon. I will also get the help of my uncle who built his own 31 footer in his garage completely himself (took him 6 years).
I am just really excited and I like reading the sailnet forums. So much to learn and nice adventures to read about.
A new and happy sailboat owner...
