Re: newbie

A newbie upgrading to a new boat is no longer a newbie.... I would go with "less seasoned"... Congrats on your progression and welcome!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
My first boat was a Catalina 22. Looks like you're upsizing a bit. Would love to see pictures.

You're even more seasoned now ... than you were after your first post!
