Beautiful craft, Yachtie. What do you call her and where is she based out of?

Im seeing some tremendous deals posted at the marina. This is a great time for anyone looking to get into boating to get a start. Ive been seriously considering picking up some kind of sailboat to learn on. As it stands, Im a powerboat guy.

Warning, though- boating will consume your life. During the time you're not spending at sea, you'll be obsessively thinking about little but your next voyage. Your working life will be adversely affected. Ive learned a lot the hard way over the course of my nautical life, and Im happy to share.

Here you go:



I have a 43' cut in half clorox bottle. Nothing to compare to this beauty.

Thanks Gents! She's our "pride and joy". Penninglock: We're on the Great Lakes. I'll keep the name private as there's a lot of information that's available concerning the owners of documented vessels.

Ain't that the truth. . Winter- plan maintenance, think about summer Spring- do maintenance, think about summer Summer- sail and think about maintenance Fall- do maintenance and think about next summer Nice Hunter, Mark.

I grew up mooching rides off other people's sailboats and ski boats. When I had some $$ in my pocket, I would help fill the tank on the latter. Sailboats cost me nothing, personally.

One of my oldest friends has a 48' Hans Christian, which I have taken many a time from Berkeley to SD, making every worthwhile port along the way. The trip back, however, sucks @$$ and is basically work, so I have done everything I could to avoid it.

Here's a capture I took of nautical people in St. Tropez. I think it's pretty fabulous.

Don't you know it...Doing tender sales all day, I really enjoy finding this stuff out.
Sold a boat to a guy (through his captain) and ran his LLC to find out that he had 3 gulfstreams, in
addition to a bunch of other boats and planes...siiiick.

Had mine dewinterized last week. Hoping to get up to the lake sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Yachtie do you ever sail to South Haven, MI? I know that spot is frequented by a lot of Chicagoian maritimers.

South Haven is really nice, but IMO Grand Haven, just a little ways north, is a nicer place. Maybe not for sailors, I don't know. But it's a great little town on the lake.

Haven't been for a few years but am planning to go this summer ( kids are asking for an overnighter). The wooden boat show there a few years back was a blast. Saugatuck ( another popular spot on the east side) is too shallow for us.
