My wife and I just bought a 1972 CheoyLee Offshore
33 to give us something to do in our spare time. We live in Anguilla
and keep the boat in St. Martin, in Simpson Bay. It's our first sailboat and we are smitten.
The boat is in lovely condition, the owner was about to sail it to Canada
when we showed up, and he had kept it very well.
We're still getting used to the boat, but so far our sails
have been fun and exciting. A couple of squalls made for white knuckles.
Our overnight stays have been fun, we sleep better on the boat than on land, but the land keeps moving after we get off.
St. Martin is the most amazing place for a boat, so many places are reachable by dingy. We are about to sail to St. Kitts to haul to boat for the season.
We will appreciate any advice we receive, this forum is going to be our main source for information and advice. If you are in St. Martin or St. Kitts & Nevis
when we are there, please give us a shout.
