Greetings

I'm still a dirt dame, but the house is up for sale, and we (my 20 year partner) have three or four boats picked out. Hope our first choice doesn't sell before our house sells


We are both in our 50s and have never sailed. LOL...I'm Sagittarius, He's Aries. Nuf said?
Looking forward to the journey both here, but especially in the water.


Rox & John

Hi!

Welcome. I'd love to hear more about your plans. Where do you plan on sailing out of? Good luck with the sale of your house! Ours goes on the market tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the Welcome!

Thanks for the welcome.


We like South Carolina (currently in North East) and we are favoring Pearson Vanguard 32.
Good Luck with your house sale too!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. Why don't you post the other boats brand and year and you might get some opinions on what very experienced sailors might pick?
You might be very experience too?
kind regards,

Take some lessons while waiting. They will enhance instead of discourage your time afloat.......i2f
