Thank you for your welcome too.

I have enjoyed reading many of your comments here in many threads. I also appreciate the time you take to give details on what you use or do (practical advice) on many topics. That providing of details is what can make a big difference and helps many who are looking for the right answers and sometimes for those cruising (or boat owner) newbies like me who don't even know the right questions.

Re: Howdy Means Ahoy!

Welcome Steady. For a newbie you bring a lot more sailing experience to the forum than some others. Although I've been sailing for 45+ years, coastal cruising, East Coast and Mid-West, Pacific Coast, I've only been living aboard full time for 8 months while cruising Southern California so I consider myself a newbie too. Glad to have you aboard.

Thanks for your welcoming words too!

I hope to become a live aboard in the next year or so, but must first move to a coastal area where that is tolerated and possible. I am at this time reading a lot about "live aboard" and learning a lot from the good folks here. I am sure I will have a lot to learn and am open minded about this.

Welcome aboard. Good to see someone else using a sextant.

I get your point.. Same here.

Also, I have spent a few more hours reading even more of the threads here, and found several where your detailed writing and including several links to additional info was helpful. Thanks again for adding valuable content here!

Howdy Astrid!

Thank you for the welcome from you too.

I have also noted several posts by you in threads I read recently and agreed with your observations and opinions. I honestly thought: "She's savvy!"

And, after taking a quick look at your profile and what you wrote you like (i.e. activities), I see we have more in common than just an affinity for sailing. Kindred spirits are always fun to meet (even if in a virtual way like on a forum), and that is one of the very nice things about being able to connect via the net, as we find others who share an appreciation for things we like or enjoy or those things of which we dream.

You mentioned the sextant. I have a number of friends who would look at a sextant and think it strange and archaic. They just don't share my wonder of the sky and how one can sight a star and find one's way on the Big Blue. I suppose one has to be a romantic to enjoy the old styles and the historic or traditional methods when new technology has made them obsolete or "old school."

I recently spent 3 years visiting and living on multiple ranches in the American West, studying and observing (and photographing for my book projects) cowboys and cowgirls who like to live a "traditional" lifestyle. Some do it with simple things and tools, some with the latest and greatest gadgets. I enjoyed seeing how the simple and traditional (no batteries required) things worked in the hands of people who knew how to handle them. I am no horseman, but I enjoyed learning from them.

I don't know if anyone here is interested in seeing photos of horse's and cowboys or cowgirls (or equestrians), but here is a link to my site where if you click on the thumbnails (of horses/equestrians) on the right side of the page you will see some samples of my work (in a traditional style) that will go into my books in the future.

Thanks! I appreciate the encouragement and the good suggestion too.

I do plan to make a lot of "water or boat" paintings in the future. And paintings of boats too. All part of the long term plan. Boat first, then paintings of boats.

I just wonder how the paint will dry in the humid atmosphere on a boat (e.g. in Caribbean)?

I also wonder whether the many pieces of rag cotton watercolor paper will get moldy in the boat (stacked). Hmmm…I suppose I will have to learn by trying it.

I actually thought it would be helpful to have 40 foot cat so I could use the salon for a well lit painting studio while living aboard. It doesn't hurt to dream of course.

Thanks! Glad you like my work (this is something every artist appreciates hearing, of course).

I see you are in SF area and sail a Freedom. Cool! I have admired Freedom boats for years. The unstayed masts are distinctive and I think have "coolness" about them too.

Nice of you and the others above to welcome a new member. Thank you.

Thanks John!

It is always nice to know others like something one makes or sees.

I have been enjoying many hours of reading the forum content and also appreciate the friendly folks here who contribute and welcome newbies to the forum. I hope to give back as I can.
