Just wanted to thank everyone for their advice when I posted a few weeks back and let you all know how things turned out. Thanks to the input I got from many on this board I feel I ended up in a situation that is perfect for me. The boat is an '87 Catalina
22 in great shape with a new outboard
and a very complete sail inventory. I guess she's probably not much compared to the boats most of you all have but she's great for puttering around the tidal Potomac
with my daughter and that's really all I wanted for now.
So far we've been having a blast and we are looking forward to a possible overnighter or two later in the summer. If anyone has any good information on cruising the Potomac
between DC and the bay, I am all ears.
Thanks again to everyone who read my earlier posts and gave advice.
