Hello from North Carolina

Greeting from the Elizabeth City on the Albemarle Sound. New to Cruisers forum and to sailing. Just recently purchased my first sailboat which is a Tanzer 28, Aquarius. I am quickly finding out that own a sailboat isnt all about sailing. Alot of tinkering and learning, but thats half the fun.

Well I just am looking forward to any advice ya'll have to offer and nice to meet you all. Well take care and happy sailing.

Aloha Michael,
Welcome aboard! Good to have you here. Lots of good folks with valuable information. You live in a great place for boating. The wife and I drove out to New Bern from Kentucky to look around a couple of years ago. Great place!
Kind Regards,
