Hello from Ontario ,Canada

Hi all
I am from Hamilton,Ontario,Canada and have enjoyed sailing my 1973 Person 26 for the last 2 years. Now stored for the winter.
Looking to sell soon and move up to a 30' to 34' boat.

Decided to join CF as there is lots of great advice to be found here and to participate in the forums.

Re: Hello from Ontario ,Canada

Welcome to the forum. I was born in Hamilton and left in 1977. Built a Van Da Stat 29 Seadog whilst there. Never did make it to the water though. Fun and adventurous nevertheless.

Re: Hello from Ontario ,Canada

I too was born in Hamilton, left as a wee lad, didn't have much choice, was 2 and the parents picked me up and took me. Only been on here a couple of years but great input and a lot of welcoming people to help and assist. I sail the great harbour of Halifax, going to try some outside this year, just back in after 30 years
