Re: How long have you owned your Boat(s) for? (POLL)

Our first 26' sailboat we owned for 12 years, in fact still own, she is currently for sale.

Sailboat #2 38', which hopefully will be our last, have owned now for almost 4 months. It's been a fun transition!

Re: How long have you owned your Boat(s) for? (POLL)

First boat was a 16 foot wooden centerboard sloop that I sailed for two years before going into the Navy.

The second boat was a 26 foot fiberglass swing keel kit boat that I sailed for 3 years.

My current boat is a Bruce Bingham designed Fantasia 35 that I have cruised or lived aboard for 30 of 34 years I have owned her.

It would be interesting to take all the poll results (like size, age, type, usae, etc), combine them and see how many people actully fit in those results...
