Hello from the Big Apple!

Hi all.

I moved to Long Island Sound (NYC, to be precise) from the Chesapeake Bay (DC suburbs) a few years ago and have been busy working and helping to raise two children ever since. Now the kids are big enough that it's time to get back on the water and the resources offered by this forum look like just the thing to help me through the myriad questions facing someone in the market for a boat.

It's great to be here!

Welcome to Cruisers Forum, AV8OR-X - glad you're here! I'm guessing, looking at your handle, that you're either an ex-pilot, or your ex-spouse is a pilot. Take some time to "cruise" through the Forum and see what piques your interest. Any questions, just ask - lots of friendly members here eager to pitch in their two cents.
