Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!!! I am looking forward to the warmer weather
as well, and hopeful that I'll be crewing
The 22' boat I had was a Hunt. Very similar to the Catalina
. I think Hunt may have designed for Catalina, at some point. It was a very quick little boat. Fun and easy to sail. It was my first. I had never stepped foot on a sailboat 'til I bought that one. I fell in love with sailing through stories of Robin Graham, Tor Pinney, and Joshua Sloccum.
After researching (a lot!) and studying a little 'Sailing for Dummies' type book, I just bought the boat and hoisted sail! What a day!!! It was like I'd been sailing all my life. Even maneuvered back into it's slip under sail.
No doubt about it, I'm hooked for life!
