I got a sailboat!

Hi, my name is Charlie. I recently purchased a 78 Irwin Endeavour 32' and have anchored in Boot Key Harbor. I started this journey around mid October. Life situations had me looking for a new home and I had a friend who had been in my ear about this sailing thing so I started looking at sailboats. I found this one in Ft Lauderdale, watched it for a month as the price continued to drop and made the purchase when it was right. We fixed up my friends sailboat in North Carolina and motored mostly down the ICW to Charleston where we went out and sailed across Georgia in some seas nasty enough to make me sick and I don't get seasick! It was hairy but we learned a lot and lived to tell the tale. We have been hard at it trying to make it to Key West but found Marathon to be a little more accommodating to our needs. If you're in the area feel free to stop in and say hello. Glad to be here!
