Iím Charles and have been lurking in the background for a few years now but today that is changing cause I have decided that buying
a sailboat is definitely in my future.
If I donít try to do some of the things I dreamt of , I wonít know if any of it was possible. I would rather try and fail than not to try.
So my background: I grew up moving every 3-4 years with my family
until I became an adult, then I did what most do.Go about our lives.
But while growing up I spent every summer in Duxbury Ma on the water
and used the rowboat that had been the tender
to my granddadís 40í ketch
designed by Sam Crocker, a boat
that I have been trying to find for more years than I even want to amid, I seem to be running about 8 to 10 years behind it.
Iíve sailed beetle cats, larger catboats, helped a uncle with his 27í Bristol, sunfishes and probably the worst day sailer ever designed a Chrysler Mutineer, of which I still own but it hasnít been splashed in over a dozen years. Now Iím shopping
for a ketch
in the 30-40í range. And thereís one that Iíll be viewing in 2 weeks!
