Old Boaters - New Sailors

Well we did it! After years of talking about it, we finally switching from motor boating to sailing. I figured I'd stop the guy from dreaming by giving him sailing lessons and then joining him too just so I know what the heck he was talking about. And we both ended up loving it! Then we took Sailing 103-104 and still we had no boat. I told him we better buy something before we forgot everything we had learned. Sailing once every 2 years is not really good, so hubby as he always does thing impulsively went out one day to "check out" a boat and came home with it. It's been one year now and although we don't go out as much as we would like, we've been out a few times, spent a couple weekends on it, and already have a few story to tell... The adventure continues.
