A couple months ago, I bought an Albin Ballad 30'. My research yielded encouraging reviews on the boat. So, I have it. However, a bit too far from where I am. The boat is in Forty Myers Fl "on its way" to Charleston SC.
I purchased the boat online, unseen but with a description. The price was reasonable and found out(to my surprise) that it was not a poster :) .
The logistics to move the boat have been very interesting. I will post that story and quest in a more appropriate forum.
I've sailed Optimists, 505's, FlyingDutchmans, and owned 16' and 18' catamarans for 20+ years. I've worked on Cargo ships for a year in the Mediterranean needless to say I've seen some wild Adriatic furies and developed a healthy respect for the elements.
Sailing 30 footers on the other hand is new to me. So, please bear with me.
Be patient, gentle, gracious and forgiving to my questions.

And O thanks for the welcome :)

Cheers, Edgard
