Hello from Maine

I'm owned by a Frisco Flyer, Cheoy Lees version of a folkboat. it's all teak, god help me. I followed various links to get here, beginning with openCPN, so I hope there's some help in my learning curve with that program.

I've spent 30 years in traditional sailing vessels, schooners, barks, and sloops. I know a lot less now than when I started.

Hi Hughman, welcome to the forum. I've always been fond of Folkboats. Beautiful lines.

Re: Hello from Maine

Welcome aboard Hughman! Those are beautiful boats, if you have to be owned by one! (as we all are)

Cool!

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF!

There are some other members here who have experience sailing traditional boats, schooners, and some who still own and sail them.

I like the Folk Boat too, though I don't own one, I have sailed/raced on one years ago.

Bon Voyage on CF!
