First boats are always great news. Tell us more about your boat and what you hope to do with it and where you sail.

Hi Paul,
I have a Starfire 32 fractional rig.
I live in South Australia and shall cruise my local area to get some experiance with this boat. I am not new to sailing but shall take things slowly whilst I learn the limitation of my boat. Hopefully Kangaroo Island around Christmas ....a short 200-300 mile skip across my Gulf

Aloha AJ,
Welcome aboard! When I read your post the first thing that came to mind was an old saying we had in the US Navy. "AJ and squared away." It was said frequently when we commented on an a good individual or a job that was very well done.
Have some great sails.
Kind regards,
JohnL
