Hello!

Hi there, new here!

My husband and I bought our first boat, a 1987 Beneteau First 235 in July. He grew up sailing on the Lake of Lucerne in Switzerland. My sailing experience is limited to a 12 hr sailing course that I took last month on a Flying Scott.

I'm itching to get back on the water, but our boat won't be ready to sail until January. We have her at home and my husband is earnestly plugging away at the rather extensive project list we compiled. He's a mechanical engineer, so she's in good hands.

In the meantime, I've been reading as much as I can about sailing. I'm totally hooked! January can't come soon enough.

~Lauren
