Long-Time Sailor Returning to the Fold

Not a boat owner yet, but looking for a good used 30-35 foot sloop on Lake Michigan. Our last sailboat was an S2 6.8 meter, but we gave it up 25 years ago for a powerboat and later for kayaks. It's time to go sailing again, and we got tired of standing on the pier watching other people's boats. And really good suggestions, please feel free to share them. Thanks and looking forward to everything this site has to offer.

Welcome Cubkin. I sailed a '79 Endeavour 37 for a bunch of years. Came back to dry land a few years ago to fatten the cruising kitty and the more often I see folks going day sailing and coming back with great smiles, the more I want to join them.

Thanks to all. We have in fact purchased an absolutely beautiful and immaculately-kept 1983 Endeavour 33. Can't wait to get her back in the water, but we'll have to wait out the snow and ice here in West Michigan before that happens. The skis are tuned and waxed, so they'll just have to keep us occupied until warmer weather rolls around again. It's going to be a long winter dreaming about the boat, but it will certainly help us think of things for the Christmas lists! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
