Smile Hi from Ireland

Hi all,

Just dropping in here to say hello.

I'm a sportsboat sailor with a good bit of cruising racing experience, on top of a lot of dinghy stuff back in the day.

My immediate reason for being here is to try to sniff out possibilities for (small) liveaboard rental in Italy, near Trieste or thereabouts, so any any initial pointers in that direction are very welcome!

Re: Hi from Ireland

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF Outhaul!

Living aboard in Trieste sounds nice. If you do find yourself a berth there, come back and post something about it here. Would find that interesting. Good luck!

There is a vast amount of information here and many helpful members who have extensive experience.

How can you quickly find answers to common questions in earlier threads or discussions?

Here is something I like to share with new members here, because it helps me each day I visit here. I hope it will help you too.

My Favorite CF Forum Tip: Use the Google Custom Search Function

I know that most people who are new to this forum might try the ordinary search function of the forum when they have a question in mind. Unfortunately that always yielded few results for me when I tried that when I first joined this forum. In contrast, a standard Google search outside of the forum can produce a bewildering list of links too. It was only later that I learned to quickly and easily find great links to archived or previous threads on a topic.

I only use the Google Custom Search field on this forum when searching this forum, and I find all the answers I need here too using that.

I find it superior to an ordinary search using the standard "search" field and usually get the answers I want very quickly. So, it is my "number one tip" to newer forum members. .

Note! The Google Custom Search field is found under the "Search" menu seen at the top of your browser window when you are in the CF forum on any page. However, it is NOT shown as an option if you are viewing the Forum site using the CF Mobile app. Use a browser like Safari instead.
Ahoy All Sailors! I love traditional sailboats of all kinds (e.g. gaff rigged, schooners, cutters, smacks, woodies, etc.). See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details.

Re: Hi from Ireland

Travel. Buy. Re-sell when project done.

When you travel to buy, you may locally explore boat rent options.

Ryanair tickets to Italy less than 200 units one way.

Welcome and best luck, have a great time in Italy!
