Baghdad to Bahamas

Hello All,

Long time listener first time caller. Let me say thank you for your spirited, opinionated, blunt, entertaining, helpful, and often thorough conversations.
Despite having no experience outside of sunfish and an afternoon spent on at 24ft daysailer I have read most of the topics and with the help of google discovered what 30% of what I was reading really was.
I work overseas and enjoy it a great deal. This has me gone 3 months and back in the states a month. I hope that this doesn’t hold me back from attempting to become a liveaboard.
Thanks again for having me. I look forward to contributing to your already amazing community here.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you posting here.
There are a couple links and a book recommendation after my signature that talk about seaworthy small boats.
regards,

Opinionated?! Certainly you can't mean this forum.

Welcome aboard and good luck with your plans.

Cheers!
