Our elusive dream... Found!

We're on Cayuga Lake in Ithaca, New York.
Although my husband is an experienced sailor, and I've spent most of my life on, near and in the water with sports and small boats of all kinds, I shared his dream of finding our own liveaboard-able "nice" sailboat and becoming experienced myself. Last week we found it. We purchased it, and yesterday took it out for the first time. The right boat, the right place, the right time. A 1990 J37C in beautiful condition.
It's a happy acquisition.

Re: Our elusive dream... Found!

Thank you very much! We'll probably be posting to the forum regularly. We have so many questions! Our first day out on our new boat was exciting. A real learning experience. Luckily the wind was light.
I'm having difficulty posting a Profile Photo? Can you assist?
Again, thanks, and I'm looking forward to using Sailnet often,
Cande
