My name is Shaina! I was originally born in Florida, raised in Alaska, moved to Georgia, and now very excited to move on back to coastal living in the beautiful Florida Keys! I'm from a small comfortable community in the North Georgia mountains, and this is my first adventure with my husband of 3 years. Our first boat is a 27' Coronado, ironically named "Carm-A". From what I understand she was a massed produced sailboat for beginners. perfect. My long term goal is to sail from the Keys to Venezuela and stopping everywhere possible in the process. (Not necessarily in Carm-A) I'm excited to join this community to learn all I can, and any advice for a woman living on a boat is especially welcome!
Welcome shainamonch, enjoy CF. Your next post will probably be from. ZEEHAG, one of our female sailors now residing in Mazatlan, MX for a few months. Once you learn to read and understand her typing you will get a load helpful info. Happy Sailing.
Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. Coronado 27s are not necessarily for beginners but a nice stable weekend cruiser designed for near shore sailing. Yes, mass produced but in the age when boat hulls were made very strong.
Congratulations on your new found life.
