OK, Don't hate on me for this one (I'm a power to sail convert...praise the Lord and pass the plate...to me!) 1965 NJ Eastern Sea Skiff...and old Clinker built power boat
that I literally bought off the bottom of Willoughby Bay in Norfolk, Va way back in 1988. Raised and restored her. Named her "Handyman's Nightmare". That boat got me back into boating
. Next boat, a 1950's 40-foot Matthews power cruiser that I bought for $500, live on for 3-months doing a lot of work and sold her for a bit more than $6000 (for a young kid in the US Navy
that was a Sh#tload of money
. Then, bought my first sailboat....O'Day 21. What a lovely little beginner boat...still my favorite sailboat even after I upgraded to a Columbia
27. The C27 was nice, but was a bit more than I needed and the wife hated it....Although the ex-wife apparently adored it during the divorce (I got to keep the O'Day). Waiting on a survey
for an 81 Hunter Cherubini
27....somehow I feel that the two of us will be a good fit. So, for now....favorite sailboat, 21' O'Day.
