Lars the Bold eh? Nice moniker. If ya sail to yer name up here you might never make it to Lars the Old, this from another brash PNW sailor.

Welcome aboard Lars! Enjoy the website! If you have any questions there are a couple of ways of finding your answers. We have a huge database of previous posts that you can search through or you can start a thread and ask questions directly to the members. It's also fun to join in on the conversations or to learn things by browsing around.

Welcome. I'm quite a ways south of you in California, but same coast. I recall from my first sailing course that the instructor said, "a sailor has to be bold." Enjoy the site and especially the sailing.

Aloha Lars,
Welcome aboard! Good to have you on the forum. Maybe you can answer some of the questions we continually get about how to get a boat from San Diego, Los Angeles or San Francisco to PNW. We've had quite a few of those questions in the last couple of years.
Kind regards,
JohnL
