Talking Hi Y'all from Baltimore

Just joined after finding this site via web search. Looks like a great place. I've done a fair amount of coastal cruising from the Caribbean to Maine (not all at once) but the farthest offshore I've gotten is to Bermuda.
Current boat is Enchantress -- 45 ft 10 in' on deck, 11 ft beam, 6ft 1 in draft, full keel ,displaces 25,000 lbs. Bought her in Antigua (picture on my postings was taken there) and sailed her back to the Chesapeake.
One things I've gotten to know in the years I've been sailing is how much more there is to learn and this site seems to have a lot of people I can learn from. Hopefully I can trade some of my knowledge in return -- mainly how to avoid some of the boneheaded mistakes I've made over the years. Anyway looking forward to it

Aloha and Welcome aboard!

"One thing I've gotten to know in the years I've been sailing is how much more there is to learn and this site seems to have a lot of people I can learn from."

That really is an accurate statement that applies to me too.

Will look forward to your input on the forum.

regards,

Hello, bloodhunter, and welcome!

I checked out your gallery photos and saw the one of Enchantress anchored off Nevis. How did you like our little island?

BTW, lovely boat!

Hud,
I envy you living on Nevis, beautiful little island. We had a really easy sail from Antigua and picked up a mooring off Pinny(sp?) Beach so we could go into Charleston for our permits. We were told we needed them to use some of the anchorages. The people we dealt with in Charleston couldn't have been more helpful in fact we got all the paperwork done in no time at all. After that we stopped for lunch at Unellas, really good food esepcially after a few days of our own cooking.
We stayed at the mooring for the night and then sailed north and around the isalnd
spent three days at different anchorages before continuing on north on our way home. Nevis is a great place, will definitely come back after I retire
