Re: So one day... I sorta bought a sailboat.

Sorry about the inability to type out very well, I was playing with my new phone and didnt have the computer handy.

The boat is occupied with Mindie (girlfriend) and we also keep a pet lion on the boat. I'll put a picture up of the lion in a bit.

So far I have redone the electrical, installed a fuse panel like one out of a garage, two pole-60 amp panel with four breakers, 15 amps each breaker, with outlets throughout the boat. One fridge, also an AC being installed soon, just a 5000 btu portable room ac. Two shore power inlets, one for each pole, so 30 amps per pole. It honestly wasnt planned out that way and I accidentally bought a two pole and it worked itself out.

Remember where I said I'm 21? well Im not some electrician, so im pretty damn proud of myself.

We again, redid the fabric on the cushions, by we, I mean my awesome grandmother who traded for some yard work and computer upkeep.

I redid some of the through holes that were leaking generously, and will soon start figuring out how to redo windows as well...

I redid the floors the week we brought it home, the previous owner used mdf particle board for floor.... we wont go there. But I redid it with thrice coated red oak ply. 1/2". Looks beautiful. planning on redoing the countertop in it too.

We stole our piece of paradise for a mere 2000$, so for all the ones that think a nice boat isn't attainable for such a low price, look farther and don't settle. Our little missile came with 5 sails, all of which are beautiful and included a nice 191 spinnaker, with pole. All new halyard lines with two motors, one of which had perfect compression and fired up on the second pull.

We plan on bringing her to the Caribbean, and while this sounds insane, we may even go further, maybe panama, south america, who knows?
