First time

Hi all,
Taking the plunge (well maybe more like dipping my toe in the water) and posting for the first time.
Please treat me gently until I get my sea legs here

Re: First time

Welcome lassie,

You can call your boat a yacht, all depends on how big it is. Or if you happen to have a captains certificate, then it is a yacht(captains don't sail boats, unless they are submarines, or they are on holiday).

Or you just plain feel like calling it a yacht. I jokingly referred my my first boat, a 22 footer, as my " yacht". Got lots of chuckles out of that.

Welcome aboard

Re: First time

Richard, Mike, Gord, Noelex and Carsten, many thanks for the warm welcome.
My first dip wasn't nearly as scary as I thought is would be .
Look forward to contributing a little here.

Well Carsten, as a newbie here I am still a little confused about nomenclature.
She has sails, but no crew. She is home, but she's also for fun. There are 4 buckets on board. I drink both wine and beer (and single malt just to confuse things).
Not sure where that puts it, so I'll stay on the safe side and call my castle a boat

Re: First time

Welcome aboard. You'll like it here. It's probably one of the least scary places on the internet.

Re: First time

A laasie with wine, beer and whiskey can't be all bad. Considering your commendable vices, we will allow you to have some virtues ( not too many). But you are certainly welcome since you have obviously a profound insight into the necessity of proper bucketeering.

We would welcome a few candid pic of your buckets in " at home" situations. Please remember this is a family site and if your bucket photos are too racy, the MOD SQUAD will come after your with fire and brimstone

But pics of buckets practicing bondage have made it through the censor

Re: First time

Thanks for the welcome Boatman and Tripod.
Tripod, if it wasn't for the fact I am barefoot most of the time, the Mods would have me quaking in my boots

Carsten, sorry, my buckets have all made me sign non disclosure agreements
