Hi everyone

Hi there, my name is Lee and I'm currently residing in Norfolk, Va and I'm moving onto a 31 foot sloop next month. I have been snooping around this forum for a few months now, and decided to finally sign up. My goal is to shovel a ton of money into to the sailing-kitty over the next couple of years and make my way down the ditch to blue sky's and crystal clear waters.

Haha, you'll probably do a better job with it than my company did with my 401k.

Re: Hi everyone

Welcome aboard. I know what you mean about the shrinking retirement fund.

I'm just lucky I have time to build it up again. I feel horrible for all those people out there that were so close to retirement and have had to postpone it now.

Re: Hi everyone

Aloha and welcome aboard!
My experience in the Navy suggested that Norfolk is a great place to get away from.
kind regards,

Norfolk is kind of crappy, but I live in a little community called Willoughby Spit. It's like a whole different world than the rest of Hampton Roads. We have a great boating community down here.

Oh, and thanks for the welcoming words!
