I am sorry too.
I posted without an introduction
Without going into great detail. or trying anyway. I'm from Australia
, now living in Florida
. I'm an engineer
but my pleasure is sailing boats.
Cats preferably but have raced many a monohull
all over the world.
Have sailed around oz on my own 30' Pion... (Vanderstadt). 15yrs ago.
Worked on submarines for 5 yrs.
And recently was engineer
on a few private yachts out of Ft lauderdale.
The reason i searched & found this site was to mix with & learn from sailors of all types. I'm just starting to search for designers/builders to build my own world cruising cat & as such have decided to cast a broad net in hope of gaining all that i can that may help with the process.
One thing I have learned over the years is that you never know where the next usefull bit of info or learnered thing will come from.
Cheers to all here.
