Greenhorn Sailor

Hey everybody I just thought I would introduce myself. Well, my name is Jeff and I live in Texas and I'm brand new to sailing. Actually, my dad and I are going to start construction on a GlenL-13 style cat-rigged boat. I got into sailing because of an English Professor in college and my first time ever sailing will most likely be on my project-boat's maiden voyage. I'm still learning all the terms and equipment and I'm sure I'll have many questions in the upcoming months so I apologize in advance. I look forward to building and sailing and I will put up some pictures once I start building.

hey there 101,

sounds like you are in for a very fun and rewarding experience! take lots of pictures and triple-check every aspect of your vessel's construction and rig. i'm sure i don't have to tell you that. i'm betting everyone would like to see pics of your launch and sail. i have found this forum to be an almost infinite source for knowledge and friendly advice, so ask the salty guys to help with everything thing you need to know... they will help you. i know i would. welcome and good luck to you and your project!

Aloha 101,
Welcome aboard!! Lots of friendly folks here willing to give advice and help with any questions you have concerning your boat building projects. Many of us started putting together boats just the way you are a few years ago so we don't mind helping.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Welcome to the fold. I started sailing on Benbrook back in the '70s.
