What the heck, have been perusing for awhile, may as well ring in. Lifelong sailor, a string of past (sail)boats from 8' to current
43'. Mainly Pacific Northwest
cruising but several trips down the Oregon/Calif coast and a solo from BC to Mexico
. Currently slogging it out working with retirement
and full time cruising on the elusive horizon. I enjoy this board and the personalities within much more than the other sailing forums
where the 'experts' can't actually have time to sail with the thousands of verbose posts they have.
Cheers, John in Portland
