Greetings from the Frozen North Channel of Lake Huron

Hello all:
David here, a.k.a. "nitpik". Since the local water is all in a solid state at the moment, and I can't go sailing, I thought it would be a good time to join the Cruisers Forum.
I have been sailing various craft for a good number of years, and am currently pouring money into a 41' steel schooner.

Welcome Nitpik. North Channel eh? Been there a few times on steel boats. Good place to have a steel schooner this time of year! :-)

Got any pictures of your project?

Hello naughty boy!

Thanks for the welcome! Here are a few pics of the boat.
(I have no idea if they attached or not - I don't see them anywhere!)
