Hi from Haida Gwaii

Hey,

Just wanted to introduce myself to the Forum - recently purchased a 1984 Hunter 31 to explore the beautiful British Columbia coast, now I'm starting to understand how much I need to learn before we can do that.

I've got plenty of questions, and it appears you've got plenty of answers!

-Ryan

Hi Ryan, welcome to the forum. You have a beautiful area to explore. Sailed a bit of it myself some years ago. Lots of good people on the forum to answer your questions.

Welcome aboard Ryan, I am in the process of exploring the BC coast from a recreational perspective . Already did some from a salmon troller. This is more fun.

Hi Malo
Long hop skip and jump. LOL I lived up in your area some years back. Good fishing and Crabbing up there. A long beat against the prevailing winds up Douglas on the way out. Not great for sailing. Planning on heading up your way this summer.
