Although I have been an avid reader of Cruisers Forum, this is my first post.
We moved to the coast of NC last year. I was lucky enough to find someone who took me sailing and was willing to become my mentor.
Although I have been a water
baby all of my life, sailing has become a passion (or obsession).
My wife and I completed our first two ASA classes
. Then, we went on the hunt for our first sailboat.
We are unwinding a contract
for a boat with a rotten bottom now. Soon, we will restart the hunt.
I hope to be able to pick the minds of the experienced on Cruisers Forum to help us in our search.
Our dream is to sharpen our skills in the next five years...having a blast in the meantime...and sail away after our youngest moves to college.
Any help that can move us more quickly or surely toward our dream of our first sailboat is welcome!
