I Got a Boat !

Whoo-hoo! I've loved sailing all my life and now (with a friend) I've finally done it and bought Enchantee a 27' monohull (Space Sailer 27 - a popular design here in Perth).

Looking forward to twilight sails, trips to Rottnest and adventures beyond. Especially hoping the family takes to it (all keen so far - but they haven't even seen her yet).

Found the discussion here on marine iPad use very entertaining. Just bought iNavX and charts and at least dreaming of the trips.

Happy sailing everyone!

Re: I got a boat!

Congratulations and happy sailing indeed! Welcome to the forum, Henry, and to the joys of boat ownership. While your family may not have seen her, I suspect that your positive attitude, excitement and obvious love of sailing will be contagious.

Brad
