How Do! Missouri sailor with Panama News.

(Skip to end for Panama news link)

Been lurking for some time now and thought I should say a proper hello. I have been absolutely fascinated with the forum here. Literally I have spent hours and hours reading it. I love the links to blogs and references. They side track me to wonderful digital experiences.

About Me: Sailor since teen ager. Mostly small boats, (lasers, sunfish, windsurfers, snipes, FJ's, Hobies, Scows, the occasional Catalina's (Sub 28'), Dolphins). I took my love of sailing to college (Eckerd in St. Pete FLA) and sailed on the the club there. Took some time off and raised/raising a family and then dived back with Jacomo Sailing Club

Now I've got it stuck in my head that a liveaboard experience it just the ticket after the kiddos head off to college. Loosely the plan is to complete ASA up to 114, complete some bareboat vacations and then purchase a 38-45' Cat and put it in Charter for a couple of years.

Looking forward to a great deal of fun and bridging the experience gap.

Found this article on one of my side tracks this morning. If you are planning a canal trip in the near future you might want to keep an eye on the labor dispute.
