Hello All

Hi!

I am a new subscriber with very limited sailing experience. I have a small, older sail boat and hope to increase both my knowledge and experience. I am sure I will learn much by reading and following the discussions of those who know more. Looking forward to the future. My wife and I have recently moved to San Diego, California.

Re: Hello All

Hello Goat,

Great to have you aboard, and here is, indeed, the place to learn much.

Go on, I give up. How did you decide on your username? We don't see so many goats on boats...

There are so many Webb pages requiring user names, and many users. I was just sitting there and it came to me "The Goat". Possibly that is one I can remember, so I used it. No real though, no real reason, it just popped into my head. It think it will work as it seems to stick.

Welcome aboard. That handle might suggest that you are an FO3 player.

Sorry, I don't even know what a FO3 player is. Just a name that came to mind. Possible related to the fact that I am an old goat.

Re: Hello All

Hahaha So am I but I still play Xbox video games. Fall Out 3 has a reference to The Goat. An apptitude test for vault dwellers in a post-apocaylptic Wash. DC
