I just bought the first sailboat I ever set foot on.

Hey all, I could be crazy but I did it. Ijust bought the first sailboat i ever set foot on. Its a Cal29, i did take a guy from work that has sailed his whole life and lives on a sailboat to check it out with me. Decks and hull all in good condition the atomic 4 is not running. I have already bought another Atomic 4 and it is at machine shop getting valves and seats done. Im slowing learning all the lingo and hopefully have boat in water in a couple of months. Im from Seattle area and will be moored in Anacortes. Planning on family cruising and a little fishing.

Re: I just bought the first sailboat I ever set foot on.

Not only did you do that - you did so without a squillion posts here on CF........

..........But likely you will fix that as you get more hands in with your new boat! (lots of useful info and helpful people here).

Anyway, welcome to CF!

Good for you, a man of decision! Now just avoid asking any questions about anchors or SSB/Ham radios!
