Aloooha!!

Howsit everybody, newby here. I am a transplanted Hawaiian living in the High Desert area of Socal now, looking to get bact to the islands, hopefully in a liveaboard Cat. I don't have it yet and I don't even know how to sail yet but I'm workin' on it and I'll get it done. This is great forum site and I can tell I will learn a lot from it. Thanks for the welcome!!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Look into some sailing lessons if you can. It'll get you on the right track. "Start Sailing Right!" is a great book that will get you past the basics.'
kind regards,
