another new sailboat owner!!!

I'm normally on the Multihull forum... but, just now purchased my first mono-hulll sailboat. Just learning how to sail!

My husband and I bought a 1983 oday 22'. It's in great shape and just PERFECT (we think) to learn on!

Anyway.. just wanted to say hi...

My first boat was a Catalina 22 and I think its the perfect size to train on and get the feel for boat ownership.

We had a 1981 30' Hunter to learn on years ago. It was indeed perfect for learning.

Our first trips to around Florida and the Bimini islands, Bahamas:

Re: another new sailboat owner!!!

my first boat was an Oday 23 .. what a blast!! no roller furling and it had a 6 hp. outboard so the bilge was always bone dry. also had a marine head which was nice. we trailered it down to the lower keys one spring and had the best sailing experience ever. those were the daze
sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most.
