Cool Permission to Come Aboard . . . Also ?

Hello, Will Jacocks here in sunny south (and hot) Louisiana. I currently own and sail a Catalina Capri 16 given to me by my brother-in-law. He found out I was looking to get into sailing and his mom asked about getting rid of the sailboat that was sitting in her drive for 6 years since the owner passed away. Well, bought me a new truck and towed it home and have had a grand time with it. Just earlier this year, a good family friend of mine offered me his Ranger 28 Tall Rig that he had in Fort Worth, it sat on the hard for 3 years and he saw that I was having fun with the Catalina. Needless to say, I gotta go buy me a bigger truck now! LOL I am hoping to add to the forum with stuff from the sunny down under of Louisiana. No, haven't had any oil yet but seems like I wont.

Good to hear that the oil isn't trouble at this point.

I think the 28' will be enough, unless the next free one is on the water and can be sailed. I don't want to have to buy a new truck every time! Haha

It sounds like you are on a roll. The next free boat will require you to purchase a big 18 wheeler to move your boat.
