Hello

I'm here because I want to learn as much as I can about sailing and cruising before my retirement in 9 years. I hope to own a 40' or so sailboat and be able to cruise to the Bahama's or just hang out in different ports. So far I've read a lot of posts and everyone seems very nice and helpful so I finally decided to join. Plus I love meeting new people who can accept my unique sense of humor.

Anyway, prior military, U.S. Army grunt, current law enforcement(field/swat). Love the water and fishing. Been around boats most of my life. Current owner of a kayak, canoe, and a great Bass Raider 10E with a 40lb thrust trolling motor. I know, most of your dinghy's are bigger than that but it's a start for me. Pics of the boats coming soon. Anything else anyone wants to know, just ask...

Thanks

ColtRocker

Hey, I'm heading to MD this weekend for a gymnastics competition in Gaithersburg. Is there anything near there that sells trailerable sailboats? I may get a chance to scout about..
