Hello from a second generation Irishman in the New World. Hope you manage to get out on the water in your own vessel soon. You'll really enjoy the forum in the mean time. I'm a big fan of the Galway Hookers. Beautiful craft.
Welcome and enjoy the CF forum !
Great to hear from Dublin as we started sailing in Malahide in a Dufour T7 in 1980 which we then took to Denmark. We enjoyed Dublin Bay so much, however, that we returned in 2012 after doing the West and South Coast first.
Now on the West Coast of Norway under the Polar Circle in our OE32 for the second season.
Good luck in your enjoyable hunt for a boat !
