pirate Guess I'm the New Guy

Hi, one and all. Found this site while searching for something else and decided to join. Hope I can learn from you guys.

I sail inland waters, Lake Sidney Lanier in Georgia, to be exact. I'd like to do some coastal sailing or bluewater sailing in the hopes that someday I'll be able to cruise.

Inland sailing is a different puppy. Winds fluctuate, sometimes good sailing, other times dead in the water. Winter time best. Lot of boats on Lake Lanier, it can get crowded at times.

I own a weird daysailor. I got the hull as payment for taking a tree down for a guy. I had a fellow fit it out with sails and a rudder, and I made a centerboard for it and rigged it out. But it has no identification on it, no nameplate or serial number. I haven't a clue as to what it is. Maybe I can post a picture to this site if I can figure out how to do it and someone out there will recognize it.

Enough for now, don't want to bore you.

Welcome aboard. We're practically neighbors. I live in WNC,and sail my boat in upstate SC. She' s a 26 footer which I've done some offshore trips with as well. I look forward to seeing a picture of your boat that you were able to trade" falling a tree" for. Now,why couldn't I have run across a deal like that

Good deal hull ...

I'm a newbie myself & would take the _tree_ if I thought I could chew a nice hull out of it. I'm on what I hope will be a temporary disability income & have more time than cash.

I'd certainly like to be making any kind of progress on the boat I'd like to retire on ... an older wood hulled something or another, yes ...
