I think I posted the last time when my husband and I were looking to buy our first boat. We got really exited about a Tartan 27 and so much more disappointed after looking at it. The boat was a dump and I had almost given up hope to find anything sailable within our budget
Only a couple of days later I saw a Spirit 28 on ebay and decided to put in a bid. Sure enough, I got the boat and we have been spending every available weekend on it. New sails
, new cushions
, tools, covers, tops, you name it. Unfortunately, the owner died and the son had to get rid of the boat. It has been very well taken care of and our 3 girls are stoked.
We have been up and down the Cape Fear several times and just started to sail out into open waters. So far we have been about 8 miles out, next weekend we plan on spending a day bottom fishing
about 10 miles out or so (weather permitting).
Next on the plan is a trip to Beaufort
, with a stop somewhere in Sneads Ferry
, Topsail Beach or Jacksonville
. Hopefully we can get that in this year, if not maybe next spring.
