I bought Hull
56 of a Bristol 24 in early September and have had tremendous fun with her on the Magothy River in Maryland
ever since. However, she is in the shop now, needing a new rudder
. I'm almost a complete beginner sailor, having occasionally messed around in friends' boats, Lasers, and a Cherub, 40 years ago, and a neighbor's 420 20 years ago. I bought my first boat
, a Walker Bay 8 sailing dinghy
7 years ago, and keep it on the Eastern Shore.
