The Beginning of The Plan

Hi All,
My wife and I are retired now and living in North Central Pennsylvania just below the Finger Lakes. I learned to sail on a Florida Bay Peep Hen with friends who were good sailors and always wanted a boat of my own. The first one was a MiniSail 13 sailboard similar to a Sunfish. It is not the best boat for two older folks to spend a lazy afternoon messing about on the lake. Fun to sail but not very comfortable. The second boat is a Ray Greene Rascal 14 with a 6' beam, nice dry seating and storage for a cooler too. When we took it out for a shake-down cruise, I went very carefully to make sure my wife had a good time and would want to go out again soon. The plan is working!! I'm not sure what the third boat will be but you can bet it will be slightly larger and slightly more comfortable. I will continue to lurk on the cruiser forums and be envious.
I wouldn't belong to an organization that would have me as a member. Groucho Marks (sort of)
