Hello

Hello everyone. I have only been sailing for five years now. So much fun. I took lessons in sixth grade but they never let us touch a boat.. Insurance....anyway got my first boat about five years ago. I pulled it from a swamp. It was a crysler buccaneer.
Two and a half years later I was thrown a 1978 MacGregor 25 Ventura. So I have just been able to sail naturally. Other than book work when I was a boy no one has ever shown me anything. I sail mostly solo. Moved to south west Florida from northern Michigan two years ago. Love it so far. Been fishing and caught shark off the sail boat. So....awesome..! anyways IM now 37 and that's my story.
