Hello all! Thank you so much for participating in such a wonderful endeavor as Cruising Forum. I am so excited to be a member
I've been on boats since I was a week old and love the freedom, structure and self-reliance. In the past I have only owned powerboats, but about a year ago I got bit by the sailing bug. I'm going "all-in" on this and have already read every sailing book in the library and have done extensive research
on vessels and equipment
on the internet
, but for the moment my sailing knowledge is completely theoretical. Powerboats-no problem, but sailing is a different animal. For now, I am land-locked, reading and doing all the research
I can so when I finally have the opportunity I can take some of that theoretical knowledge and turn it into something more practical.
So again, hello to everyone who makes this such a valuable site and brings all your knowledge, experience and stories to the world. I look forward to asking lots of questions and getting all your opinions...
