I've been lurking around this site for years and dreaming of buying
my own cruising sailboat for even longer. Happy to announce that the lurking will continue and the boat dream has become a reality. I present to you my first sailboat - a Tosca 36', center cockpit
, built in 1985:
Previous owner is a super nice guy who kept insanely detailed records and built a very informative website
about her, if you're interested in all the nitty-gritty.
Since I'm based in Shanghai, China
and the boat's in Thailand
, I won't be cruising off over the sunset too soon. She does make a nice "2nd home" in one of the prettiest sailing regions in the world. My plan is to head
over every 2 months for a week of sailing - long enough to get all the China
pollution out of my lungs
Any of you sailing around Phuket, hope to see you soon!
