Greetings From Tennessee

Hello All,

My name is Chris, and the Admiral and I are starting the process to buying our first real boat. We've had differing levels off experience. Most of mine has been on fresh water on small boats (14' and 23'). The Admiral has blue water and great lakes racing experience on much larger boats. This summer we are planning to take classes for our ASA certificates(101 - 103). We are also reading everything we can. I am truly loving reading the forums and living through your posts the lifestyle that is our dreams!

Sail on!
Chris

Re: Greetings From Tennessee

Welcome to CF. Where in Tennessee are you? I just moved to Clarksville and working on getting a boat to use on the local lakes.

Boating to the Vol Football games is the best part of having a boat in TN!
