New to this site and sailing

I have inherited my sailboat from my uncle who is unable to sail anymore due to his vision. My husband and I are waiting patiently for her to be delivered. We plan on storing her in our driveway for now so we will be able to work on her and get her cleaned up. She has been neglected for the past 3 years sitting in her cradle left exposed to the elements and she needs a lot of TLC. So we take on this project willingly and ready for a new adventure in our lives. I'm so excited.

Re: New to this site and sailing

Welcome aboard, been there and done that. It took me 2 1/2 years but she is a great boat now. Good luck. hang in there, don't get discouraged and do the work your self you will save a bundle and learn your boat from tip to stern. If I can be of any help let me know.
