I live near Lake Charlevoix and just purchased my FIRST boat a month ago. It's a Ranger 23 TM 'Grendel' I found in my home town for only $900. I spent the last month getting it sea worthy and now it's moored on the lake as of June 1st. I've gone out twice and I'm learning a lot.

I've been sifting through the forums since last August and thought It was appropriate to finally say hi! I'm Keith, 23 years old, and I'm excited to start cruising and racing.

Peace! :D

Welcome!
My first boat was a ranger 23, you'll love her. She points well. She balances out so good you can walk forward and she holds course ( I singlehanded and never needed an autohelm). Best of all she is very forgiving, I had no prior sailing experience before owning her so I made all the mistakes and she just took it. I loved sailing up and off anchor with her too. Have fun!
