I'm not an owner, but take boats from our fleet at www.windworkssailing.com
in Shilshole Marina. There are some great boats in the fleet and it's fun sailing all the different boats to get a feel for what I like and what I don't. I'm 49 and the good Lord willing if I ever get to retire, I'd like to think I'll be an owner by then.
Besides, my wife likes the idea of pay as you go, and I don't have to spend what little time we have working on a boat. As I mentioned, this is year one of sailing, and have so much to learn! I crewed on a couple races out of Shilshole this year and think I'd like to do more of that. Great fun!
If you ever need some crew, don't hesitate to drop a line.
