re: What made you buy your boat?

We bought our Beneteau 352 for a number of reasons. I'm 55 and my husband is 60 and this is our first (and likely last) boat. We wanted to be sure that we would be happy with it for many years, even...

Re: Is sailing intuitive?

I really appreciate all of the advice and collective wisdom. Now if only you could make the snow melt, the ice thaw, and the temperature rise a bit, I could get out there and get to it!

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

I hadn't considered a keyboard...that could work! I'm classically trained, but I like a lot of different styles of music. I lean toward the romantic styles. I only play for me because i don't play...

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

I'm thinking I need a place to land...but who knows, living aboard could be interesting (and I could leave the piano with my daughter). :)

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

And let's not forget...the piano goes where we go! But I'm ready to find a more forgiving climate...and ready to retire too!

Re: Strength Training for Sailors

Interesting comments about yoga. I just started occasionally attending yoga classes over the past few months. It's a LOT more difficult than I expected and forces working on balance. I should...

Strength Training for Sailors

A question for those of you who don't sail year-round and/or fitness buffs: Are there any specific strength training routines or balance exercises you recommend to get ready for the sailing season?

Re: Adjusting from Water to Land

My husband and I took possession of our first boat (Beneteau 352) on Friday and spent the long weekend on it...

My husband and I saw three very well-taken care of boats this weekend (looking for our first boat): A '99 Beneteau 352, a '92 Catalina 36', and an '87 Catalina 36'. The Beneteau is considerably more...
