Thumbs up Greetings

Hi,We are Carl and Carla,no foolin, Our vessel is a 45' Columbia shoal draft 85 HP Perkins MotorSailor,Hull #141,out of 187,This is our first boat,Have owned for 14months currently in water,but we are gonna pull next week to replace steering cable.
As if this purchase did not complicate our lives enough,against wise advice I also bought a 1975 Jersey Sports fisherman,32 ft twin 318 Chryslers
We look forward to gleening as much info knowledge,and humor as possible from these pages,We are certainly not a reservior of transferable knowledge at this stage but are open to learning,in essence we dont know nough to help anyone ,but give us a decade or 2 lol!!!
Two kinds of people in world ,Those who dont know,and those who dont know they dont know!We comfortably fit into the formerHope to get to know everyone !!!

Aloha Paradox...Sounds like you have your hands full...of boats. Welcome to the forum

Greetings and welcome aboard Carl & Carla.

There are two kinds of people in the world - those who think there are two kinds of people and those who don't.
Iím of the donít persuasion; believing that there are three kinds of people in the world - those who can do math (or count) and those who canít.

Unless you read ďThe OnionĒ, which claims that "There are thousands of types of people in the world: The type that divides the world up into two types of people, and the thousands of other types."
