Another Newbie Sailing in !

Hi Everybody!

I'm Ryan, a born and bred New Englander. I've been a small boat sailor (15ft CCB Mercury) for about 14 years now and just today took ownership of a 68 Grampian 26' (and man am I in trouble! :P) In theory I have most of the skills to fix her up into what I hope will be a charming, alarmingly small (to my fiance at least) liveaboard, but I suppose we'll see how it goes. In the meantime, I've read threads on this site for the past year or so and figured it was time to say hi.

-Ryan

Aloha and welcome aboard!
No matter what the size of your current liveaboard you'll always find enough stuff to overfill it.
kind regards,
