Hello From Nova Scotia

Hello,

I am new to here and new to boating as well. The first time I have ever set foot on a boat was last year with my boyfriend. He, however, has always been on the water in some form or another.....both in work and pleasure. I must admit I am loving it and hope to spend alot of time in the coming years on the water. We are not in the class as some of those I've seen in here so far but I know my boyfriend does dream big sometimes so you never know....lol. But I have noticed that if you have a love of being on the water it doesn't matter if you have a 40' yacht or a 4' rowboat. Everyone just seems to share this love of boating and sailing. And i may even meet a few new people....lol.

So hello to everyone here and I'd love to get to know some new people.

Welcome, SuzyQ...

Where are you in NS? My wife and I toured NS by road a few years back; great fun!

SuzyQ7006,
Welcome aboard. Do not let some of the class scare you. Most of are in the same working class. Like you we are trying to pursue a dream. Remember you should always dream big and work hard for that dream. Do not buy things that do not support your dream.
John

Thank you for the welcomes. I am living in Canso, Nova Scotia right now. I grew up on Cape Breton Island though.

SuzyQ7006,
My wife and I rode the Cabot Trail on our motorcycle a few years back. Beautiful country even though it was cold for a Florida couple. The Bay of Fundy was something else and I thought my tidal range was bad.

Hi Scallywag,
Well you're one up on me. I've lived in Cape Breton my whole life and have yet to see the Cabot Trail. Hopefully this year in the fall when it's the most beautiful I'm told.

Have been to Canso twice in the last two years, you should check out the Port Hawksbury Yacht club close by you. Was the best stop I ever had on my trip out the St Lawrence in 2005. I stopped at the little marina near false channel twice great fellow there who runs it. We will be back in your neck of the woods again next summer on our way south.

Hi Artful Dodger,

Thanks for the tip. We've never been there so we'll definately have to check it out.

And I would just like to say that you guys here are the friendliest people I've encountered yet in a forum. I haven't been in many forums but you guys here are very nice and welcoming. Thank you.

Aloha Suzy,
Welcome aboard! I would recommend a rowboat at least 8ft in length. Already my opinions are becoming obvious.
Good luck on finding all the information you'll ever need here on the forum.
Kind regards,
JohnL
