Re: Bought my first boat!

Congratulations on the new boat. my first keel boat was a 1984 catalina 27. very quick and responsive, and fun boat to sail on as well as stable enough to take her out on long island sound through small craft warnings, altho with much trepidation the 1st time. I re-bedded the dead windows but still had recurrent problems so good to hear you only have a slight leak in 1..Universal diesel pushed her along at 4-5 knots even in some chop...learned a good deal about boat maintenance through working on her. Enjoy your Spring, Summer, and Fall sailing on the Chesapeake...

Re: Bought my first boat!

you lucky dog. You live in one of the more interesting sailing venues. Have a great time. One of our members has a slogan at the end of his posts that goes something like " I spent all my money on boats, booze, and women. The rest of it I wasted." I see you are in the right frame of mind now. He he.

Yesterday, I bought my first boat....a Catalina 25 #4520 named S/V Shamrock 5. Had a great day on the Patapsco River and looking forward to a great summer on the Chesapeake. If any of you out there have any great Chesapeake sailing sites or resources to check out....feel free to point me in the right direction. I've also heard of a few sailing/racing clubs in the Pasadena, MD area which would be fun to learn more about.

See you on the water
Fantastic, well done. I took the plunge last year - best thing I ever did. Help from almost all those with much more experience and know how has been amazing.

I'm pretty sure I used to be your boat's neighbor back about 2010 in a marina off the Potomac! Still looking good!

The smaller the boat, the bigger the adventure!

Looks like you've got some big adventures coming your way!

That is a good looking boat with everything you need. Best of luck to you!

Loving the name. Any connection with Shamrock V, the famous slightly longer yacht?

Congrats, I'm soooo jealous! I am right behind you. I am looking at boats and marina's, along the space coast of FL, at this very moment. I hope I can post the same thing in a month or so.

I don't think so. Maybe original owners had that in mind
