Hello Salty's and sweeties (lake sailors)

This starving Engineer finally got enough money set aside to start looking for an upgrade of my sailing hardware. Currently sailing Ensign 17 in New England. Like my wife says "A great boat but too small"
I do appreciate all the advice and the experience collected in this forum and do promise not to make it worse.
Happy Sailing My friends

Re: Hello Salty's and sweeties (lake sailors)

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF!

Since you are new to this forum, let me mention a few things you might miss but that could help you more enjoy your time here:

Take a look at the Cruising WIKI that is found via the tab up on the top menu bar of the forum. It has a LOT of information in it you might find fun, interesting, or helpful.

Looking for Quick Answers?

This is the best and fastest method I have found to the answers I seek here.
Since you are relatively new to the forum, here is my favorite friendly forum search tip: Look at the green menu bar on the forum pages for the drop down "Search" menu. Click on that to drop down a list of search functions. From that drop down menu select the GOOGLE CUSTOM search feature (the second box down) and then enter several different descriptive terms for your topic of interest. That will do a Custom google search of ONLY this site and it is likely to find answers to your questions or results for you. Note: this is different from using the regular forum search box or field. Also note, this is NOT found if you use the CF app. It IS found if you use a web browser such as Safari, etc.

Ahoy All Sailors! Need Crew for a long voyage either coastal, ICW, or across an ocean in 2016-2017? I am available. See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details. Happy to lend a hand!
