Thanks for the welcome.
I was fortunate to have a really cool high school
teacher that taught a math/science class around sailing, our "final" was to sail from Noank to various places on the sound in the teachers 36' boat (I can't remember the brand, it was at least a few days ago).
We plan on hittng the dealers on the shore this summer to see what's around. Used is always good too, I do all my own work so maintenance
isn't an issue.
Always nice to get first hand information though, if it works it works, I'm not to proud to copy it
