Hello to everyone! I already posted a thread on CruisersForum a few days ago but thought: "It's never too late to say Hello!"
I'm an Army (Infantry) Veteran and in my late 20's. I started sailing early this year and can't get enough. I recently drove to FL from the west coast
just to look at a few cheap
boats... I ended up with one of them and I'm still here! I am looking into crossing to Bimini
soon or exploring the Keys (prior to crossing to the Bahamas). My boat is a 1984 31' custom built sloop-rigged cutter
(Original owner commissioned some company to build a sailboat out of a great hull
he found/liked). 3/4 Keel
, 12HP Yanmar
I've been having a lot of fun with the boat but also spending countless sweaty hours preparing her for cruising. Very lucky I was able to pick her up for 11K. I'm residing at Dinner Key Marina (Liveaboard) as I have no other home since leaving mine behind to follow this dream. I hope to see some of you cruising in the future!
Thank you folks already for being so attentive to my other thread and giving me a lot of great information regarding Gulf Stream
resources, etc. Without places like this, Newbies like me would be that much more lost
. Thanks again!
