Life Began…

Life began, at least my sailing life, about a month ago (June 3, 2009) when my wifeiPhone 012 and I purchased our first sailboat.  She’s was a 26′ Columbia Mk II and she was our pride and joy.  Although she needed some fixing up, we were learning to sail with her, and alas, we sold her to make way for our new boat.  We now own a Harstad 31 (try to find that one on the web!) that is actually 32′ LOD and has over 6′ of headroom in the main saloon.  She’s a beautiful boat!

This blog will stand as an historical account of our learning to sail and our iPhone 038adventures.

Update August 9, 2010: We sold our Harstad 31 and will be picking up our new boat this weekend.  She is a Columbia 36 that has been completely refinished both inside and out.  She has a new (50 hours) Yanmar diesel in her and is in immaculate overall condition.  Here is a picture of her:
