New and old

Hi all,
New to the forum but not to sailing. I am currently getting my 36' Morgan OI ready for moving aboard the end of Oct. Virgo hadn't been out in over two years when we got her but she is very solid and I can do the work myself. My wife is new to sailing but excited about our upcoming adventures.

Re: New and old

Hi Ed,

I learned to sail on an OI36 and still have a very soft spot in my heart for the boat. It was a great liveaboard and fantastic Bahamas boat. My only complaint, it was not too good upwind but just a little engine help it would motor sail very well. Also found it very comfortable at sea.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.
