Boat: Bristol 24'
Posts: 7
I Am Going from Huntington Bay, LI to NC - ATM!

Hello all! First off I just bought a boat last week on e-bay for 355$ Oh yeah! So I go look at her,jump up and down all over it and can't find a soft spot. The boat is a 1969 24'Bristol. With a newish 9.9 outboard and 4 ok sails,new vfh,batt. ect.... So I have now been taking my time coming down south. I am somewhat new to sailing but not to the water. I use to fish out west a bit I am a 37 single guy with no kids so I just decided to go for it. I am now at Green Point Landing,Worton Md in the uppper chesapeake. I just left the C@D canel a day or so ago. I really have had a blast so far. Can't wait untill the weather clears and to see some more.
I have alot of pics so far but I can't seem to get them to show up from photobucket for some reason. thanks Dan. Oh I really do need me a auto tiller. Man sitting at the tiller for more than 5 hours gets tough. Dan

They don't have ATMs in Huntington Bay, Long Island?

I didn't have a chance to find out. :)

Part of the deal of me getting the boat was to get it out of there. I had cash and a friend drive me up from NC to look at it. I looked then headed out the next coming south. I have not looked back once. Oh here is another pic me coming into Hells Gate.

Great smile on a new sailor! I wonder how long it is last after he sees the prices of tiller auto pilots and other navigation "toys" and other stuff for the boat. $355 is a great price - but be warned you can add an extra zero behind that number and get the initial price of some of the extras you will be lusting after - to just fix her up a little bit.
