Hi People, from Louisiana

Hi people, new to this forum. My name is Dan, I have always been interested in sailboats. I bought an old North American 23 a few years ago. I use it mostly on Lakes Maurepas and Ponchatrain. I have taken it on some short over nite trips along the Gulf coast also. Kind of small for cruising I know, but it works for now as long as the weather doesn't get too nasty. I have learned a lot on it and used it to introduce friends to sailing. A few have been bitten by the sailing bug real bad. Hope to buy a bigger boat soon, but this one works for now. Great site and hope to see you on the water.

Welcome to the forum Dan,
Do you know what kind of boat you want? Fin, full, cut away? Or maybe a cat? Have fun looking.
