New to the forum but not new to to the water...

currently marooned on Vancouver Island but keeping an eye out for a suitable sailboat. I've run powerboats professionally and owned a 42' Mapleleaf when I lived on the central coast, but my heart belongs to multihulls.

Looking forward to lurking in various forums until I get my sealegs

Aloha Christopher,
Welcome aboard! Vancouver Island is a good place to be marooned in my opinion. Good to have you here.
Kind regards,
JohnL

Hey Christopher!
We have a 42' Mapleleaf and enjoying every moment sailing the PNW & Columbia River. We plan to cut the lines in 23 months and set sail for the warm waters.
