Well, some of you might remember from about 2 years ago, when i got started, i wasn't the most present of forum-goers, but i left, and now i'm back, and I'm not going to be a jerk like I was then.
I still don't have a boat, but i have a dream. I'm 17, a high school junior, and in college. I'm not entirely sure what i want to go to college for yet (which is OK since i'm only taking GERequirements right now) but i'm starting to think about doing something boat related.
A little about myself:
I'm 17
I'm in college
I love boats, and constantly sketch designs
I'm a born-again Christian
I live in Wasilla Alaska USA
I'm an open minded person, but i'm a faithful Christian, and not afraid to express my beliefs, and talk about God's word. (Although I'm not all fire&brimstone about it)
I hope to get to know you all, and learn about sailing, boats, and related things.
I hope for a fresh start with Ya'll (yes, i just typed ya'll)

To be honest, the first one didn't even last 13 or 14 years! ;-)

Re: Glad To Be Back

Hiya Lt! Welcome back! How good are you in Math and in Physics? If you are very strong in these subjects, consider a career in Engineering. Good luck!

I'm in HS pre calc junior year, so I'd say I'm good at math. And going to get HS chem next year. Look up a.Middle College or two, its a bit of a goofy set up, but it works well, and that's what I'm in, hence the bouncing back and forth between HS and College.

Re: Glad To Be Back

Hiya Lt! Since you like drawing/design, take an engineering design course like (Computer Aided Design) AutoCAD or a similar design package. Then you'll have two possible pathways: 1) You'd have taken a must have course in pursuing ANY engineering major, or 2) Continue on, and get a two-year Associates degree in Engineering or Architectural Drafting. Good luck!

Thanks, I never thought of looking at a 2 year degree like that. There are so many flipping options out there for college degrees, certificates, and so on that it totally befuddles me.

Re: Glad To Be Back

Aloha and welcome back!
Good to have you here. Best advice I can give is stay in school until you gain a marketable degree if your economic situation can handle it.
kind regards,
