Took about 30 years, but finally got my first sailboat
I was on my way to sailing in 1984, summer classes Thurs evening Eckerd College St Petersburg, FL. Too many thunderstorms, course cancelled halfway. Moved to the east coast of FL, focused on belly/surf boards now that I have waves. Moved to northern Alabama where Tenn river sailboats never leave their slips.
Retired in 2015 and had money left from the FL 30 yr old home remodel and just bought a Morgan 36 (Nelson Marek) 1983 last week. Started sailing in Oct 2015 Halifax Sailing Ass. took all their classes Sunfish, Capri, Keel Boat (Catalina 25 w/outboard engines) all Halifax River Florida sailing. Only one HSA boat goes to the ocean a Pearson 30, been it it twice in 10 months. So I need my own boat.
The Morgan36 is for the coast, taking lessons when the instructor says it's OK.
