Re: New Sailor To Forum - New Bern, NC !

Hi Tammy,

I actually came on CF today to see if I could find an experienced hand to help a prospective buyer take my current Catalina 38 around to Mobile AL.

My wife and I are relatively novice sailors but have both completed the ASA courses and sail out of Ensign Harbor Marina in Merritt (just outside Oriental). We could teach you the basics and are always willing to help someone learn!

My regular email is my name garthbirdsey AT msn DOT com.

I find the CF email hard to use.

I have purchased a larger boat to replace the Catalina and have the Catalina for sale right now. I have it priced pretty aggressively so don't expect to own it for long.

Tammy, welcome aboard. Do you currently own a boat or are you looking for a captain with a boat to teach you the ropes?

Good afternoon, I'm interested in a Captain to teach me the ropes. I'm a hands on learning type.

Re: New Sailor To Forum - New Bern, NC !

Hello Tammy, Welcome to Cruiser Forum! I thought I had sent you a message but I guess I was incorrect!

My wife and I sail out of Broad Creek in Merritt (near Oriental) We are both retired Navy and my last ship was LHD-3 and we had MEU-22 onboard! (That was in 1995!).

We are planning a trip out this week sometime and will most likely be sailing through the weekend. We are sailing a Catalina 38 which is a fast and fun boat. This will be our last trip of the year but will be back in the spring.

Let us know if you are interested in sailing with a couple old squids!

Garth and Belinda

Re: New Sailor To Forum - New Bern, NC !

Hi, this is Philip in Rome, NY. I have found it rare to find a woman who is interested in the liveaboard life. I am about to get back to mine aboard my new 50 foot catamaran which will splash down near Oneida Lake in May. Self-designed, self built (not quite complete just yet) twin masted, junk rigged (the easiest to build and to sail), luxury (to me) home on the water.

I am early retired as well (judging by the picture), just turned 60, non-smoker, with two cats to join me in my trip to the (eventually) Virgins. If you are still looking to go liveaboard, send me a message. Very long term, I hope to sail to the South Atlantic, maybe even Antarctica (that might be the most hospitable continent in a few years---lol). Looking to see lots of islands along the way.
