Hey all. I live in the SE part of Houston and just now seriously getting into sailing. You know, watching all of the YouTube videos I can find, going to the local sailing club and picking their brain, looking at sailboats as liveaboard, etc. I've got my eye on a '74 Gulfstar MKII 44', but it needs a crap-ton of work. I joined to get more info on living aboard, sailing tips, frugalness, etc.
I'm a complete and total newb, but I'm extremely willing to soak it all in and learn from mistakes. The engine appears to be out of sorts, but I'm going to take a closer look with someone that's much more experienced than myself. Thanks for the warm welcomes and I'm headed to volunteer next weekend thanks to xeon's post. Thanks xeon for the info!
