Hello from Downeast

Great site. Lotsa info and friendly peeps.

Just went sailing on my buddies Rainbow 24 out of Winter Harbor
And I'm hooked on sailing again.
Should I sell my powerboat for a sailboat?

Re: Hello from Downeast

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. You've posed a good question. I prefer wind vs. fossil fuel for power and don't care for the engine sounds so for me its sail.
Power does have an advantage when going to windward and if you are in a hurry.
Most the boats I sail have auxiliary engines but still can't go more than hull speed.
kind regards,
