Hello from Melbourne! (no not Australia)

Hello CruisersForum!

I have been in the shadows of this forum for a few years now but never actually made an account. 100's of searches have always led me right here so I figured now was as good a time as any!

On Christmas Day I officially started living aboard a 1977 Capital Yachts Newport 30. A few weeks in I can definitely say I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I am so glad I made the jump! My plans are to continue learning how to sail, restore the boat, and sail to Key West this summer when the lady finishes grad school. I look forward to what the future has in store, as well as interacting with all of you!

Cheers!

Thanks Gordmay!! Does anyone know some trusty mechanics and/or technicians in the Florida Space Coast area? Looking for someone to lend a hand in my repairs and restoration.

Greetings Captain Swayyy! Glad to see another local newbie. I am in IHB and I have been doing all the work on my 82' Catalina 22. If you ever want to sail or talk shop, would be willing to help out too.

Hey! We were just looking for a good anchorage over there on the Banana River. I will definitely be in touch
