My wife and I own a 38' Irwin Citation on the Texas coast, and are in the process of refitting at the moment. This is our fourth boat, and our second sailboat, so we are obviously hopelessly hooked on throwing money into holes in the water.

See you around the forum,

Don W.

Aloha Don,
Welcome aboard!! Yes, we all like to do that (throw money in a hole in the water) but I like to do it a little less than some. I think I'm getting the reputation for being cheap. I buy good quality used stuff when I can.
Hope you enjoy the forum. I certainly do.
Kind Regards,

Welcome Don,
Personally find it best not to think too hard about the $$$$ when it comes to the boat. Makes it easier, if you know what I mean.
