Howdy and Welcome!

Being boatless should be a temporary condition.

Not fair to place such temptation in front of a newbie. Does she come with sailing lessons?

Very cool, thanks! I would like to see the boat and how she sails. Seems like potentially a good fit for me, so I am more interested than I should be. Though, I promised myself I wouldn't start looking for boats for a least a year... On the other hand, it wouldn't hurt to have a peek, right?

So if you don't mind an awkward noobie tagging along, perhaps you could let me know when you will be in town via pm?

I was half kidding... but she surely is a good fit for somebody, and that somebody just might be you! She was a great fit for me, and if it didn't cost 50% of the sale value I would move her and keep her...

There's a fine line between "waiting to find the right boat" and... "waiting too long" to find the right (or any) boat ... Like the guys that live in the yard for 15 years fitting out a boat that they never sail...

I LLLLLOVE to take newbs sailing... As does most every sailor I know... The gleam in their eye, and grin on their face when given the helm/sheet/halyard etc... Is worth it's weight in gold...

I'll PM ya now with contact info...
