Hi - New Member

Hi

After some lurking I've finally got round to joining, I sail the south west UK and own a lovely Albin Ballad.
Thanks in advance for all the advice I'm sure I'll be asking for!

Lew

Re: Hi - New member

Hello all! We are new to this site and are really enjoying the great advise so far. We ( Jim and Melony with our cat named "bawls".) are living aboard our 79' Pearson 365 ketch. Staying in the Dog River area of Mobile bay, Alabama. Melony is attending the Blue Cliff massage therapy school and graduates in September . After which we shall be making our way to the Fl. Keys and hopefully the BVI's . Melony wants to know what to do about our cell phones and how you keep in touch with the main land. I am just interested in what routes or advice you may have, keeping in mind were on the cheap and love the hook. I am building a teak massage deck over our forward cabin, planning on offering day sails with included lunch and massage to keep us afloat once we are down there. All opinions are welcome. Thank you, Jim.
