Hello all, finally decided to try sailing after years of dreaming and thinking about it. Signed up for some lessons this summer, bought a book and even found an old used boat to play with in the mean time. Think I'll be posting several pictures asking for help putting this thing together...not a clue really what I'm doing. Had a friend stop by last night, look at the boat and said "Wow, theres a lot going on in there" referring to all the lines, shock cords, pulley's ext. He then told me the happiest days of a boat owners life are the day he buys the boat...and the day he sells it....man I hope thats not true.
