Yes, I live in the Arizona desert, but love the ocean and all things related. Been a lurking CF member
for several months, but thought is was about time to introduce myself. My wife and I recently purchased a Hunter Passage
42 and plan to do some local cruising in So Calif. whenever we get the chance - our last daughter is still in High School
. Would like to make plans for more distant destinations in the future. We have some experience with a previous 30' sailboat, but this is my first 40+ boat. Still learning
the ropes and gaining experience, so I love the threads, contributors, and all the great information in this forum.
