How'do

Hi, my name's Aaron and I've been in and on the water all my life, but I have no sailing experience. My plan is to refurbish a family boat that's been in the backyard for years and, eventually, to sail it (hopefully to the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica/Nicaragua). I've been swimming, surfing, fishing, and basically beach bumming all my life, with the past few months being the exception. That's about it for me; see you around the board!

Oh, of course. I actually don't have a boat, per se; the boat in plan is the family's that's been otherwise rotting in the backyard for a few years. Definite fixer-upper, but watertight and with useful sails. It's a 1971 Morgan 22 ft slip keel, model unknown (currently...papers are in the boat). More on that later. It is as unready for my plans as I, but we'll both be seaworthy asap, with a projected deadline of this time next (this?) year.

What part of the Gulf Coast are you from? ...assuming that's what your user name means. I'm on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Not a sailor, yet!
