Hey, Sailsport1, just checked out yourwebsite; very informative to a prospective newbie, like myself. I just bought a house in N.C. ~15 mi. from Holden Beach. It's a vacation home for the next 8 yrs. until I retire, then we will be there all the time. Got out of power boats some yrs ago, but I got the bug for the water again. Sailing sounds like the plan now, and the 'Getaway' looks the a good boat to start and maybe end with. Your website more or less confirmed what I've been thinking. Wish you were closer to NC. Thanx again.
