Hello! We are a family
of 4 with a Mutineer 15 daysailer. Looking to upgrade to a real boat
in the next year or so.
I grew up sailing a C&C
30 with my grandfather but I donít have any recent experience with big boats. However, my Mutineer has taught me a ton about sailing and has been a blast.
Weíre hoping to look for a big boat
(36-42í) and since I donít have much experience, I know I need to take some classes
(both for insurance
reasons and general safety). So far I only have the USCG Basic Boater Safety
Course, which Iíve had for over 10 years. Aside from the ASA
100 series classes
, does anyone have any suggestions? I donít want to get too far off the topic of introductions. So Iím sure Iíll post some questions in the proper forums
after doing a thorough search to see previous posts with similar topicsÖ..
Anyway. Iím glad to be here and meet people! I donít have any friends or family
that are into boating
, so I feel pretty alone. I hope to make some new friends, especially if youíre from the NJ area or surrounding statesÖ. Or Connecticut as most of my sailing experience was up there on Long Island Sound
and Fishers Island Sound.
