Re: Just bought first sailboat!

Looks like a great boat in the pictures. If she's half as good as she looks, you should be fine. Congratulations! I bet you are dying to get down to her now, eh? Can't remember if you said how much sailing you have done but if only a little I'd recommend getting a little boat like a Laser to learn on and really fall in love even more with sailing. It's easy to transfer what you learn to a big boat.

Re: Just bought first sailboat!

Here's the boat I bought nearly 4 months ago in The Netherlands, still haven't seen it. The owner seemed like he cared about the boat and had upgraded it over 17 years ownership. Saved on the airfare and hotel costs plus survey etc. Not an expensive boat so didn't seem like too much of a risk. Now 1 month away from seeing it and finding out, hope it exists.....Click image for larger version

Re: Just bought first sailboat!

Congratulations. You've just joined a large and happy group of people who are not right in the head. Just one suggestion - let her drive, and learn together. No yelling and you've got a happy team.
