Sounds like it might be an Endeavor sailboat. What size? I don't know.

Izabel, there are lots of real sailors around the Tampa Bay area. Hopefully at least one of them can give you an afternoon or two to help you get things sorted out and show you how to get in and out of your slip without a major disaster. I'd come down myself but I have my own old boat to work on here in NY.

This is a long shot. There was a member here by the forum name of "Knothead" who is/was a rigger in St. Pete. His real name is Steve Smith (I believe) and he has/had a rigging business there (there are not that many boat rigging shops in St. Pete). I'm not sure he is on a smooth path in life at the moment but he may be able to refer you to someone else if he is unable to help you out.

Good luck with your new endeavor and good health!
