I Think Salt Water Tastes Good

Hey everybody! I just joined the forum because I like to talk about boats and read about boats. My girlfriend and I have cruised from NC to the Abacos and back on a Newport 30, moved to the mountains, realized that was a mistake, and now we're back at Wrightsville Beach. We are looking for a Pearson Ariel to buy and move onto. Looking forward to talking to all of y'all!

Tony

We moved to the mountains (Asheville) and realized that was a mistake and then moved to Wrightsville Beach also.

Then we moved South from WB eleven months ago.

WB is a cool place, we bought a boat there as was our plans for moving there.
We lived there for 1 year, and as usual we dug in deep.

Let me know if we can help you in the area.



peace

neat

That's crazy, we moved to/from Asheville as well. I really loved it there but had to get back to the coast. You're probably not missing the weather up here- it's snowed three times in WB this winter.

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Tony.

When salt water tastes good, you may be dehydrated, and in serious need of water.

Go for it. Have you narrowed down to one particular boat already?

Try to cut the salt with rum. You'll still die, but you'll have a better attitude about it.
