Well....that is a nice sailboat. I prefer powerboating but hey, as long as you get out on the water and have fun, that's what it is all about, right?

I assume you keep her in a slip year round? Is that expensive?

Unfortunately no, the boat is in the water from April to early October. The marina freezes in the winter. I just hauled out yesterday and put the boat in my storage facility today. Sad day...

BTW, I've converted many powerboaters to sailors...I won't hold it against you!! :pirate:

In terms of expenses, it's not bad. About $2k for the season. I chalk it up as a vacation expense. The social scene is awesome. I'll spend a weekend at the marina - arrive Friday and get home Sunday. Here's a pic of my new racing sail I got this year:

I'm sure THAT set you back a pretty penny! :blink:

Do you have any pics of the cabin of your boat?

Yes, it is always a sad day when you have to store them away for the winter. Makes me want to move to Florida!
