Proud Boat Owner!

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.

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.
