TheMarcuccis Hi dodido,
My wife and I just purchased a Hunter 34 recently, and get back into the country in December to live on it for hopefully about 4 years. We are very new to sailing as well, and really don't know everything we are getting ourselves into, except that it will be a great adventure. Hope all goes well for you on yours.

smackdaddy Hey ctar - welcome to SN dude (even though you signed up WAY before I did). Nice boat you're buying.

There's a living aboard thread on here where you can get a lot of great advice. Enjoy.

lovetosailnow I would love to hear the story behind buying this boat if you never sailed
was it always a dream? Or just a good deal? There must be more?
Does it need much work?

Never sailed but bought a boat.


I've never sailed before, but I recently purchased a Bayliner Buccaneer 240, I think it's from 1974. I am going to live aboard it for the winter, and I'm glad to have found this forum. Thanks for existing!
