Another greeting.

Good day all;

I've been active in other forums for a few years now, but only discovered this forum through a link posted on one of my favourites.

I live in western Canada, on a green paradise they call Vancouver Island.
Educated as an engineer, but with 30 years experience as a fabricator I now work as a Quality Control Supervisor for a company that makes ASME pressure vessels, mostly from various stainless steel alloys. A decent wage, a good computer and all the stainless I can steal.

Currently I am restoring an '82, US 25', quite possibly the Rambler American of the boat world. I find the design acceptable, but the execution as cheap and nasty as only Bayliner can do. The hull is sound and nearly everything else has been removed and replaced as close to properly as I am able. She is still on the hard, but awaiting a slip, as are many others around here.

Keep the slimy side down.

Feetup

No, up Island in Crofton. A company called Geo-Tech. A few years ago we did mostly pulp mill equipment but now we seem to do mostly stuff that ends up on another continent.

Are you familiar with the Island?

Aloha Feetup,
Welcome aboard! Hope you can find some other folks on your island that are also members of the forum. We had a few from the Vancouver city side here awhile back. I got to Victoria once a few years ago and my friends just left Campbell River last year headed for Mexico.
Good to have you here.
Kind regards,
JohnL

Apparently, not as well acquainted as I thought.
