I recently just got my first boat, a beautiful 26ft pilot cutter
. I've been dreaming of owning my own boat for years, and so she's my pride and joy. Right now I'm working on fixing her up a bit, making her shine, and then I want to get out and explore the BC coast.
I'm wondering if anyone else owns a boat of pilot cutter
design. Mine is sloop
rigged, built in 1968 in Cowichan Bay, BC (that's in Canada). I haven't actually taken her out sailing yet, but from what I hear the pilot cutter design is a pretty good one. I'd love to hear more about it!
Also, let's hear from some young people that are captains of their own ship! I'm 18 years old, entering into the sailing scene now. I'd love to hear from some young people, especially on North America's west coast
, who have their own boats and could give me a few pointers!
