Long time lurker, just pulled the trigger

Greetings from the chilly, and skinny Great lakes. I've learned much from this site, in particular that there is no perfect boat. Just bought a new to us 2005 Jeanneau SO 40.3 for use in the Great Lakes. Looking forward to leaning even more!

Both. Sailed the Great Lakes for many years with my Dad, many years ago. Went stink boat for about 15 years. Nearing retirement and wanted back into sailing. Mined a lot of information from this site during my research, last 12 months. Closed on the new to us Jeanneau a week ago.

Leaning? Now that's a nasty typo for a sailboat.

Congrats on the new boat anyway.
