Fell Hard For Sailing

Just found the cruisers forum after selling our Catalina 25 and looking at another possible purchase.

Sailed for the first time with a friend a couple years ago and can't get enough of it. Why didn't I find this when I was 30 years younger?!

Thanks barnakiel. I can't help but think how much fun I've missed in 30 years!
Butler, I received your reply to my first post that I deleted because I think I got too in-depth for a greeting. Besides, I didn't cap all my subject words and didn't want to get scolded on my first post!

Yes, you have the freedom to sail the seas but make sure you capitalize the first letters in your thread titles!

I'm making my way down the coast as I write this. I've tried this 2 other times. Always something. It's not too late for any of us.

His stated location (under the avatar picture) is northern Ca. That might be a clue if you thought about it for a while...

Re: Fell Hard For Sailing

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Great to have you here. Yes, I wish this forum had been around 30 years ago except I didn't get email until about 17 years ago and it wouldn't have been fast enough to do any of this.
Catalina 25 is a good one.
