Introducing My First Boat

She's not much, but the first sailboat I've owned. A Triton 24. Has a very good rep in Aus. One feature I particularly like is she is very roomy for her size, with a double settee and two quarter berths rather than the two quarters and double v-berth (which I dislike) that I've usually encouneted on boats this size. I've attached the specs if anyone wants to look/comment. As a noob, I appreciate any constructive criticism/advice I can get.

Those specs seem a bit fuzzy, so I'll post a link to an easier to read version:

My first boat was a Triton 24 - great boat - did many miles in her and survived a "severe weather" event in - of all places - Storm Bay!! Easy to sail and well behaved. Great choice!

Hi, my first yacht was 25 foot, no head room,[I am 6ft] a stripped out hull, I used camping gear for overnighters, I have just bought my 4th, a Hartley Southseas 38 ft,
still not flash, but very comfortable,
Cheers Emmo

G'Day Genomic,
A lovely boat. If I recall we used to look up to such 'large' craft with envy!
Enjoy - sail safe - keep us all posted.
JOHN
