Greetings from the Lake Erie

Hello
I hope you are all a friendly Lot...
I have been in around the intercoastal waterways since I was 4. Dad was an avid motor boater. I swam across the Ohio river when I was 6. Life Guard at age 15. Single Ski Salom sking at age 9. Started Sailing in 1982 on Lake Erie. Sailed most of the south west shore From Cleveland to Maumee. The islands Kelly, Put-in-Bay, Pelee. I sailed a 30' Hunter weekend trips with friends aboard. I also did single handed week long trips. I sold in my friend in 2012.

I guess I am getting the itch to get water under the sole again. Hench I am here. I am thinking a 37-40 that could be single handed.(Used)
Maybe a Morgan or an Endeavour. Mostly coastal to start then Flank out and do the Panama canal maybe even out to the Hawiian Islands. I am going probably going to nurture a companion to sail with. But We shall see what the winds bring.

Re: Greetings from the Lake Erie

Maybe not too early. I have to put a couple of holes in my hull for some new transducers. Maybe on your end of the lake would be ok though.
