Have been browsing this forum for a while and finally joined yesterday...My first post here about the "What's your dream boat" topic
and looking forward to staying on these forums
more often as it seems to be geared to the type of sailing I aspire to do...
2012 will be first season ever of sailing and have actually never sailed in my life! Have been on a catamaran
before and was amazed!
Wife and I are truly obsessed with the Ocean and I knew I eventually wanted to buy a boat
, just did not know my life would persuade me to a sailboat!
Bought a classic
after some research
and looking at a few boats...Long story short, my boat
ended up choosing me as I was approached by the previous owner prior to me choosing to inquire...Got it for the money
I was willing to spend for a fixer upper, and this one is in really good shape, and not quite a fixer...Although being an loder boat from the 60's, things it needs for upkeep are inevitable and have already started to work
on a few things...
Nothing major but maintenance
Looking forward to April!!!

And a couple old school
