Re: Greetings All

Thanks,

Now for some advice...I'm looking at a 22' boat and was just wondering if this is large enough to do some offshore sailing down the coast. Everyone is using much larger boats from what I've read so far and I'm limited in experience and cash. More silly questions to follow.

Re: Greetings All

Well I did it. Bought a 26' couple weeks ago, been working out the little problems and getting things ready to go. If all is well and weather permits I will be launching next week. Wish Me luck.

Re: Greetings All

I got a 1989 Macgregor 26D. Older boat but in good shape. Something I can use to learn in.
