A Fresh Greeting from Finland!

Hi all,
I just joined this forum yesterday, but have been following many interesting and useful threads during last year.
I have been cruising in the Finnish and Swedish archipelagos since my childhood, mostly in slow motor boats. Some years ago I bought a Walker Bay 10 in order to test if my teen-age dinghy sailing skills still existed. Then I acquired a bit bigger sailboat, and finally two years ago a Shipman 28, a 29 ft sloop built in Sweden 1973.

Old as she is, and not very well maintained, I have quite a lot to do before heading south next summer. In these projects I have had great help from CF posts, thank you!
