I went and bought a boat. To be specific, she’s a 1975 O’Day 22. Didn’t pay much, and she’s not really worth much. Actually, maybe the guy should have paid me to take her. Here she is.
- Me and my new sailboat
The inside is a wreck, and I’ll have to learn how to do sailboat repairs.
This project seems interesting enough to blog about. We’ll see.
Why did I do it? Sorry, can’t answer that question.
Do I have any sailing experience? Not much. OK, really not much.
Am I handy with tools? Sort of. Mostly wood. I’ve never done fiberglass or metal work.
What the heck, I’ll figure it out as I go. Should be fun.
Oh, by the way. Someone has agreed to give me a 23′ O’day as well. I’m meeting him Saturday to get the keys and paperwork. She’s at a marina near annapolis. Don’t know how I’ll get her home. No trailer. I guess I better figure it out before the slip rent is due in February. Wish me luck.
