Hi all...

Me and my wife bought ourselfs our first sailboat (or first boat at all ) just a month and a half ago. An Albin Vega that had been grounded for at least 5 years in the forest.
So we are startning out with some renovating.
Our plan is to sail away into the sunset and let the wind take us where it wants to eventually.
If we're gonna use this boat or another? We don't really know yet, only time will tell i guess. What we do know is that we got ourselves a great first boat to learn about sailing/crusing.
Like I said, neither one of us have any experience about sailing but we agree on "How hard can it be"....

Welcome to the forum.

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow - what a ride!"

Aloha and welcome aboard!
That's a good choice in boats so you have a good start. I would suggest a basic sailing class for you and your wife to get you started in the right direction.
