Re: What Was First Thing You Did In Your New Boat

Well all the money has been paid and the paperwork has been completed. She is waiting at the slip to greet me, her new owner. But it will still be a week before I get down to Phuket to visit her for the first time

Thanks for all the comments about your first time. I think we will spend the first night just the two of us, quietly in bed getting to know each other.

Re: What Was First Thing You Did In Your New Boat

The first thing I did was sail her! Now that boat bonding and cuddle time is over I have made my list of to-do's and have been doing to-do's between sailing ever since. Sailing priority 1 - to-do's Priority 2

Have fun, sail! enjoy her, maintain her, and sail her.

Motored 5 hours up the St. Johns river from Ortega to Julington Creek with a 15 to 20 mph head wind against the current.

I had my 32 foot ketch ushiped from LA to Lincoln Nebraska and the driver broke down in the Rocky Mountains.

So the first thing I did was rescue my sailboat!

I own a toter home, so I fired it up and it was 9 hours to Denver.

Months of cleaning, diesel repair, bottom paint, wet sanding and buffing and we splashed in Branched Oak Yacht Club. Sure glad I went to so much work!

I had called the driver and he said he was in Denver. He sounded odd. Then he told me he broke down and left my boat along the highway in the mountains! WHAT!!!!!!!

I called the highway patrol and alerted them and headed to Denver.
