A Hearty Hello from ne member in Virginia

Hello to all. By way of introduction, I am a new owner of a Tom Colvin designed 38' steel-hulled schooner built in 1974 named "Mistress Quickly". She has been on the hard-stand for 4 years and I am in the process of painting, refurbishing the rigging, etc in preparation for re-launching next month. We are in Deltaville, VA. I am looking forward to taking part in the interesting forums on this site.

Hey Barrie, Welcome! fairly new myself to this forum but not to sailing. Am in the process of completing on a steel boat also, a Van de Stadt 34 which has been meticulously maintained - hopefully one day our paths will cross before our wakes do! Fair winds!!
