My name is Aaron. I was bitten by the sailing bug about 30 years ago, sailing Hobies on the Indian River in FL but I took a 20 year break from sailing to work for uncle. I joined this board originally a few years back after reading "Into The Light" by Dave and Jaja Martin. Got myself a 68 Cal
and got so busy refitting and sailing, sailing and refitting that I forgot about this place. I got a dose of reality with that boat. Learning
that I'm not indestructible was quite the bitter pill but I'd like to think I'm better for the it.
In the meantime, the economy went south, at 45 I found myself without employment
and found the Chesapeake and her tributaries clogged with abandoned boats, power and sail. So I've amassed a nice collection of classic sailboats and begun cleaning
them up and making them seaworthy
. I currently sail a 1970 Albin Vega
out of Bodkin Creek and keep my little fleet on Nabbs Creek. Yes, they are for sale
and I don't want to be branded a spammer so if you want to know, contact me in private.
I plan to actually sail someplace outside the CB with this boat. I have friends along the Gulf Coast
and if this British Petroleum goatscrew gets resolved I'd like to cruise
Corpus to Naples next Spring.
Anyway I look forward to your collective sage advice and the typical antics found when a group of sailors gather.
