Hi, My Name Is Dave and I Am an Addict . . .

ADDICTED TO SAILING! I'm new to CF and I wanted to introduce myself. I sail a Jeanneau 51 that is the second love of my life. My wife commented that she would prefer I had a mistress rather than S/V Kush. I commented to her that I could sell the boat and get a mistress... with a boat. That comment got me a night on the couch. I'm 50, retired from Education, and spend as much time on the boat as possible. I've been sailing since I was 8.

If you get a chance, drop me a line. I am a typical A type personality, so you will probably like me or hate me, with little indifference.

Take a moment and say Hi. WHo knows, you could be the guy in Tortola that I towed the last NM to port, or the couple in St. Vincent that had the wiring issue with the windgen. You might be the family in Socca, France, that I took pout for a day sail. Who knows... you might have bought me a beer at a seeside bar sometime in the past (and I'd really like another)

So hello and I look forward to sharing with you all.

Dave

Welcome Dave, this is certainly where you will find many great answers to questions. Some of them may actually work.
