I've registered, posted a bit, run into a couple of old cronies here and even had a post deleted (deserved), so I think I'm ready to say Hello.
My real name is . . . Bob J. I'm a bit more of a racer
than cruiser, mostly because racing
forces me to get out of the slip regularly and it keeps me sharp. I race
single-handed on San Francisco
Bay and out the G' Gate. I've been married for 24 years and we have four kids
, three still at home.
My boat is pictured in the monohull
"My Boat" thread. I've owned her for 6 years and been sailing for 40. I like most any boat with sails
- I have almost as much fun sailing an 8' El Toro as I do sailing my J/92. I've owned quite a few boats over the years (the largest was 33'), with the common denominator that they were not white. (Okay, there was a white C-D 10 and briefly an FJ.) There was pea green, blue (x3), yellow (x3), bright-finished oak, vivid red and even an orange one.
You sound like a good group of folks - I like the tone of the board.
