Husband & I bought our first boat recently (Clipper Marine
30, 1970s trailer-able sailboat). Keeping her up at Kerr Lake near the NC/VA border where we can drive up from North Durham to fix...I mean...SAIL her frequently.
as we go, got some time under our belts, completed 101, scheduling 103/104, getting some blue water
time in whenever possible on weekends. Slowly replacing everything not done in the previous refit
(and RE-replacing some that was...sigh)
Long-term plan is to upgrade to something larger in a few years & live aboard, eventually someplace South TBD later.
Always happy to meet some local-ish sailors for fun/drinking/learning as we go! Share stories, advice and experiences, and maybe a weekend rental or two!
We've hit some snags, but even the BAD days have been awesome!
Looking forward to new adventures!
