Hello Everybody, Just Bought My Boat

Hi to everyone, I'm Art, and this is my first post. I've been following this forum for a couple of months, and learned a lot just reading what everybody else has to say. After 25 years of reading and dreaming, I've finally done it, I bought a boat.

I've got a lot to do, & learn, but at least I've finally started. Looking forward to the journey.

Thanks, Art G.

Thanks Marcodnn, I've read some of your posts, if I remember correctly you purchased a Contest. Although I may have you mixed up with someone else.

Re: Hello Everybody, Just bought my Boat

A Tartan 27, Hull #13, It's on the hard now, only had a week to sail her before I had to come home. In November I'll return to Florida, and have her put back in, and start cruising.

JUST CAN'T WAIT!!!
Didn't mean to shout, but really, I loved that week.
