New member- just learning the ropes!

Greetings all. I am in the process of selling my Niagara 26 (fast little racer) for more comfort, Beneteau 321. Looking forward to learning more about big boats, diesel motors etc... I am locted in Halifax, NS so if anyone is headed this way, let me know. I know most of the best sailing spots and drinking holes.

Hi Gary.. Welcome to CF.
The 321 is a nice boat.. well the 87 model I had was pretty stout and did a trans-Atlantic without much trouble..
Whats the other 'Bendi..'?

Re: New member- just learning the ropes!

Actually both boats I am looking at are 321's, however, I just found out that the deal on a 1995 beneteau 321 is going to work, so I will own her tomorrow. But I think I will wait until I sail her before posting the first picture, better than just a shot with no mast sitting on the hard.
