Hello to all,
I have been lurking this forum for about two years now. It has been a great help to me in a lot of areas especially in finding the right boat. I have enjoyed reading the many posts and getting to know all the members by their posts.
Last year a lot of things came together for purchasing
a boat. Found the right size, full keel
, classic double ender, lots of leaky teak
to restore and a price
not to be beat. For those out their looking for deals... they are out there.... Got mine because the former owner got a girl, got her pregnant, got married, goodbye boat. Not to mention research
I'm sure I will have many questions as time goes I have one regarding an engine
which I will post in the appropriate category but my plans for now are to remove it and re-power with electric
, whoops did I just open up a can of worms with that topic?
It's kind of funny
I read a post not to long ago about a guy being scared because he just bought a bigger boat, Heck I don't even know how to sail yet and I bought a big boat, Whats with all the whistlin and popcorn around these here parts
, and has Mark J ever shown up?
Looking forward to many chats and if anyone is around the St. Augustine/ Jacksonville
area would love to hook up and have a beer
or two. If you need a hand or two on a sail My girlfriend and I would gladly help out to learn from the more experienced.
