New to the board and to sailing. I should actually restate that, new to sailing on the ocean and in a boat
bigger than 16 feet. I've owned a couple little sailboats like a Sunfish and a small Hobie, but I haven't owned a boat
in the last 20 years.
So for retirement
, we've purchased a condo near Myrtle Beach (Murrells Inlet) and a boat currently docked at the Grande Dunes Marina in Myrtle Beach. It's a 27' Hunter
with Yanmar diesel
. I've taken it out for a trial along the intracoastal and a brief sale
(mainsail only) on a small bay. Everything worked much better than I had expected, so I'm pretty happy.
I look forward to reading and learning
a great deal on this board. Thanks in advance to those who have answered the same question dozens of times before; I especially taking the time to answer my question. Of course, I plan to do a lot of searching on this board and other sources before I go too far into questions.
So ... HOWDY! I look forward to being a member
of the community.
