Finally bought my first sailing boat... Budget was low, but found a fully refurbished kirie feeling 286 special, for a fair price.. looking forward for some n.m. around malta this year, and hopefully sicily next year.

Re: newbie

Welcome aboard. Does your Kirie have the lifting keel? Always intrigued by those and consider it for a future boat.

Re: Newbie

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you posting here. I recommend lessons if you haven't been sailing much.
Those engines do make a lot of racket on a sailboat.
kind regards,

I was thinking to replace the engine in the near future, to something more power and maybe less noise!!..
Any suggestions?
