Hello All

I am new to sailing and looking to retire to a boat next year. Trying to learn as much as possible through classes and reading. I have gained a great deal of information from this site. Thanks to all. Jim

Re: Hello All

Welcome to CF Jim, you are doing what most of us are doing , we at least me, keep Posting and asking you will get response. Good Luck with your plans

When I was a boy my momma would send me down to the corner store with $1 and I would come back with 5 potatoes, 2 loaves of bread, 3 bottles of milk, a hunk of cheese, a box of tea and 6 eggs. Can't do that now, too many f**kn security cameras.

Re: Hello All

Welcome! It's an exciting process, retiring and moving to a boat, and should find lots of support in this forum.
