I live in Canton, NY and own a 1978 Aquarius 21. I have about 6 years sailing experience with 3 of those years sailing my Aquarius. However, since moving to the state of New York
about 5 years ago I have not been sailing and my boat
has sat (mostly neglected) on its trailer
I'm finally getting to the point of cleaning
up and repairing my sailboat so that I can start sailing again. I joined here in the hope of getting help with understanding what has to be replaced and what is still good enough until I can replace or repair
. So I will be posting
in the general forum once I upload some pictures and asking for help.
My sailing experience has mostly been in the Potomac
River. Other than that river I've only sailed in a bay once or twice. I hope to sail in the great lakes
someday and also would enjoy island hopping in the Caribbean
and sailing from the US to Europe
. I do recognize that my boat
is likely not really suitable for sailing in the ocean and so likely go sailing with someone else for ocean sailing if I ever get to that point. For now I'll be satisfied getting my sailboat back on the water
in lakes and reservoirs near me.
