Ahoy mates!

I'd like to introduce myself to all my new friends. My name is Jim Walsh, I'm 52, and I have been a sailor since the age of 10. I own a 1984 Cape Dory 31 cutter "ORION", the constellation of the hunter (I have been an avid hunter all my life). My homeport is Noank, Connecticut, USA, which is on the northeast coast of the United States. I am a widower so I currently cruise New England with my dachshund "Wilhelm". He is in charge of security, I hold all other responsibility. I am pleased to make your acquaintance.

Hi Jim and welcome aboard! I hope you join in often and get to know all your new friends.

Play a little with the "USER CP" function where you can add a signature, update some personal information about your location and your boat and add a personal "avatar" which is a small picture of your choice.

Welcome to the fun!

Re: Ahoy mates!

While that's a little creepy, I don't believe it's a record.
