Hello

Hi folks,

We've recently purchased a Maple Leaf 42 and are busy learning all we can. This is our first large sailboat, so there's plenty to discover all the time. Our boat is at a marina in SW Florida, so we're looking into information on anchorages along that coast for our first extended trip this summer.

Glad to meet you all,
Sue and Scott

Thanks, John! So far, we've enjoyed the new boat very much. In a few weeks we'll be off to spend two weeks sailing, which will be our first (of many, hopefully) long excursion. Barring hurricanes, of course.

All the best,
Sue and Scott
