New Boat Owner - New to Forum Too

Hi All,

A quick introduction of myself.

I went to school many years ago to be a naval architect and worked as one for a number of years before changing to web sites. Family happened and I never had the opportunity to get my own boat.

My wife and I are nearing empty nest and have purchased our first boat. Our hope is to be able to live on it eventually (for a few years) to do something different.

The boat is an Apollo 32. I am looking forward to many months/years of learning how to use and maintain it.

Cheers,
Matthew

Welcome aboard. Glad to have you on the Forum. And congratulations on the new-to-you boat. I saw in a different thread that it is a 1974. Well, mine is a 1973 (different make). I think a lot of those oldies are goldies.
