Howdy and Welcome Aboard the Forum!
I enjoyed sailing from Oahu
and a week in Hanalei Bay. Hawaii
can be a beautiful place to sail. I remember thinking how brilliant blue the water
Since you are new to this forum, let me mention a few things you might miss but that could help you more enjoy your time here:
Forums 101 - Posting, Accounts, Basics
There are also some "social groups" that are more focused on special interests. I am not a member
of those groups, but you should be able to find them if you do some exploring of the forum website, look for "groups."
Cruisers & Sailing Forums - All Groups
As I recall
there is a social group on this forum site that is focused on metal boats.
Profiles Help People Relate
You can also post a profile (when you sign up you can create a profile on this site or edit it later) and in that you can also post photos and a description of your sailing desires or experiences. I also encourage the use of a photo
of the sailor (or couple) as the avatar. I think it also adds to the "human community" aspect of the online experience.
Good luck on your sailing adventures and have fun!
