Hello All !

Been reading this forum for quite some time now,found very useful info here.Been sailing for some time as a deckhand(winch monkey?)for a while and I like being on the water.Did some sailing when I was in my teens but later forgot all about it(work,business etc)..

Last summer me and some friends rented a boat(multi) and we cruised in the Baltic,that is my "bluewater" history so far.but it was GREAT!

So far no big plans but there is something cooking in my head...

Cheers,

JJ

Re: Hello all!

Welcome aboard jj! Being a winch monkey is not so bad, I/Les seem to be a fo'c'sle monkey most of the time. If there is work to be done forward I am always the one to do it ... and it is my boat
