It took until just a few weeks ago to find the right buyer and the right circumstances.
My search queries were pretty humorous.
.... you know.. I never got good at the knot thing..
Looking back, dropping that kind of cash on a sailboat, having no clue about it, probably wasn't my wisest move. I didn't have a clear understanding of the maintenance costs, even boating law.
I could drive a jetski at 80 mph through a 10 ft winding river. How hard could a 28 ft boat be?
So, what did we learn along the way?
How to sail, for one. How not to sail, for two.
I also learned that I'm not yet in the appropriate stage of life to be a sailboat person. Any number of side jobs/ full time responsibilities, a family and an often-seasick wife all told me "sell it."
Still.. sitting on the bay at a marina, the cool air on my bald head, I could hear the wind and waves calling. Good luck Stargazer. Treat your new owners safe, may the winds continue to be in your favor.
