Greetings from Texas!

Greetings, My name is cap'nrick, I am a newbe to sailing. I have been working in The Gulf of Mexico for three years on offshore drilling rigs and have gained a love for being at sea. I began researching sailing and before I knew it I wound up buying a sailboat on e-bay. It is a fixer upper, and my goal is to have it in the Gulf and sailing and hopefully living aboard by spring 2008. I am in the sponge mode right now, absorbing all the information I can get compressed into the tiny zip file between my ears. I look forward to comunicating with all onboard in the future!!
Cheers, cap'nrick

Aloha Capn,
Welcome aboard!! Good to have you here. Tell us about your boat and ask questions if you'd like. I've learned a lot from this forum.
Kind Regards,
