Wink Greetings from Alaska - new member

Hello, I'm new to the forum. I sail a Beneteau 423 up here in God's country. I bought the boat new in Seattle and sailed it to Alaska. When not sailing I've been customizing for longer adventures.

Welcome Landshark,
Love what we've read of your sailing gounds and hope one day to get there. If in the meantime you can keep us all posted on your own sailing escapades, it would be much appreciated.
Sail safe

Love the space on them. Is it 2 or 3 cabin?
I haven't sailed one though, and would be interested to see what its like uphill in a fair breeze... and you should get fair ones in Alaska!!
