Hello all, I'm a Cruising Dreamer in Phoenix

Hello,
I signed up for my account here a long time ago and have been reading posts for a while, but haven't introduced myself yet.

I'm planning on buying my first boat this year and will be slowly getting it ready for a multi year ramble. I'm sure you've all heard this story a million times, so I won't bore you all with my pie in the sky ideas of circumnavigating and making a million dollars on youtube.

At the moment I'm living in Phoenix AZ, but I work remotely and I have very flexible hours so I can be where ever when ever. Very easy for me to get to Los Angeles, San Diego, and Puerto Penasco. I make it out to the Bay Area pretty regularly as well. If you're in any of those areas and have room on your boat for an inexperienced sailor who's best sailing skill is getting yelled at without taking it personally, then please let me know.

I'm also as interested in boat repair and maintenance as I am in sailing, and I would love to help out if anyone has any restoration projects in the works. I'm pretty good with fiberglass, and with out tooting my own horn too much, I can say that I have a knack for quality when it comes to things like wood work or painting. If you've got a project you're working on, or you've got a project you're willing to trust me with, I'm happy to work for free. (fair warning, I'll probably bring cameras and you may end up on youtube)

Looking forward to chatting and or sailing with all of you lovely folks.

Thanks,
Quinn

Re: Hello all, I'm a Cruising Dreamer in Phoenix

You can make a million bucks on youtube? Dang, where have I been!

Welcome aboard, and how soon can you drive out to LA? I have a lot of boat work you can practice on and I won't even charge you too much!
OK, I am joking.
I do have a lot of boat work, but I always feel too guilty asking folks to help out. If you are in the area we'll go sailing though!

Re: Hello all, I'm a Cruising Dreamer in Phoenix

Heck yeah.
I'm actually planning to head out to LA in July, to get my ASA 101 - 104 certifications. I'll let you know when I have more concrete plans and see if I can get a few days before or after and get some work in on both boats.

Speaking of ASA, does anyone have any recommendations for cheap or good (preferably both) schools?
