Hello / My First Boat

Hi all,

I just joined the forum and I'm excited to make my first post.

I just bought my first boat a few days ago, a 1979 Columbia 8.3, for $2500. My knowledge of both boats and sailing is very limited, but I am quickly learning and excited to absorb as much knowledge as I can.

I'm sure I will have MANY questions as I go along, but just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself for now.
