Training Vessel

Tammy and I found a 25' 1978 Hunter in very nice shape for our training vessel.  We were looking for something quite a bit larger, but it spoke to us.  This should allow us to learn what size we really need.  It is currently in Corpus Christi, TX on the t-head there.  We will arrange the paperwork in another week when I'm off again and spend five days on her, seeing what she needs.  Also take the basic sailing course while were there.  We will keep it there until the end of March (slip is paid till then),  then see if were brave enough and the weather is good to move it to Kemah, TX.  Play awhile there and then move it too the Dallas / Fort Worth area and spend many days on call playing on the lakes around there.

Found our sailboat 1978 25' Hunter.  She's a beauty.  Asking $2600.00.  She's in good shape as far as we can tell.  Settled for $2400.00, got a bill of sale and going to finalize next trip to Corpus Christi, TX.  Chris and I both felt her talk to us.  After looking and talking about several boats she's the one.  Nice teak wood on inside.  Very happy feeling about this.

Tammy and I  (Chris) are going to change our 'Living and Loving Life' theme to 'S/V Living and Loving Life' which S/V means Sailing Vessel.  We are going to look at a boat; hopefully not a project boat; to learn to sail on around our current adventure, wish us luck.  Maybe learn how to afford to make sailing around the world a current adventure.
