Old member back for a while

Hello y'all:

I was active for many years on this forum when I owned and cruised sailboats, but stayed away when I went over to the dark side for several years. Now I am boatless and may get a sailboat, power boat or stay boatless. But I do want to contribute to the cruising community.

I am pretty competent in all things boating, having owned some eight cruising boats (in succession, not simultaneously) over the years. I did almost all of my own maintenance and am a pretty competent boatwright, general mechanic and marine electrician although I have never made a living at it.

So here I am. You may be seeing me posting from time to time.

Welcome back David.
All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangereous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. T.E. Lawrence

Welcome back. Good to see you again. What kind of powerboat did you have and why boatless?
