Back on the Water !

Hello! Glad to find a forum like this. Finally bought another boat (my second) and am very excited!! It's a1973 Grampian 26. I will live aboard. I lost my last boat, a 1967 Paul Schreck "Way Out", in Katrina and was displaced to an area with no water. However, the new boat is in Norfolk and I will be sailing it to New Orleans. I'm excited but a little intimidated. Guess I'll go and start asking questions!!! -Ben

Welcome aboard Ben. If you need any assistance getting her ready to sail, give me a shout. I am local in Virginia Beach and can offer you as much assistance as I can.

You will enjoy that boat Ben.

Give us a shout if there is anything you need to know about her. I also have a 1973 G-26 with many miles of racing and cruising on her. Love that boat!!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
It's good to have you here. I've not sailed a G-26 but have heard good things about them.
Keep us posted.
kind regards,
