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

Firstly, names Patrick, I'm 21. Secondly, I just bought a 73 Morgan. 27 footer. I'm from New Orleans, but live in Fort Myers. She us a fixer upper, but I've done a lot already. Installed shore power and 120. redid the upholstery.

I sailed her sixty miles from Charlotte harbor to what is now home. I'm new to sailing, but planning to go far in her.

... Now that we are acquainted, here are my billion questions.

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

GOOD ON YOU PATRIC!!!!, I bought my first boat at 22 (17 foot) and my first real cruising boat at 24(26 foot). It was a great life to be on the water. Now I am old and planning a bucket list cruise, which will be slower, but still fun. OH to be 21 again.____Grant.

I uploaded a picture. I really love the shape of this boat. Tomahawk is her name.
