When I decided to become a sailor, and sail the world. I bought a wreck of an O'day 22 to learn on, and as I was fixing her up my neighbor "retired captain
" advised me not to put a motor
on her. He accurately stated people would stare and point when docking
, and situations would be challenging. Yet it would really teach me to sail, and it has!
PS ready to move up from the O'day.
