Hello from the Arctic!

Just thought I would say "hello" here! My wife & I are both avid sailors who are currently planning to build a schooner & do some world sailing

I've been reading a bunch of info on the forums & so far really like what I see.

Thanks again.

~Steve & Kristin

The Arctic? Ouch.

One bit of advice. Go South!

Welcome aboard.

I don't know George, I'll bet they get some great EMPTY anchorages up there.

We never have to fight for space, LOL, that's a fact!

We are trying our darndest (anybody still use that word???) to go south; which is where we will start the production of our schooner.

Thanks for the welcome

spidey, welcome aboard. I am a big fan of Ak. What part of the state are you located?
I look forward to hearing your progress.

Aloha Steve and Kristin,
Welcome aboard!! Good to have you here. I've a niece in Anchorage that I haven't seen for a long time.
What kind of schooner and why a schooner? Just curious.
You might want to check some of the threads on this forum discussing different sail rigs.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Add my welcome to Steve and Kristen also,

I for one would love to sail up your way - so maybe one day we'll cross tracks.

Cheers
JOHN
