Live aboard Alaska worked on the sea new to sail

i used to think i knew everything about this part of the world then i went sailing in 2014 i joined the cruiser forum back then i am very glad i did mostly i have found that unless boat make or engine make specific if i look through the forum most of the questions have been asked and answered but that said sailing is so much more in-depth than most of the power boats i have worked on in that well done properly i know they can be safer but incorrectly and i could be in a big hurt fast so anyways i don't know if i ever properly introduced my self my name is renn and i already have many persons to thank for helping me get over some of the more difficult learning curves that i know are endless
any body heading up to alaska well i am in southeast in craig alaska just message me and we can swap stories and intel

Re: Live aboard Alaska worked on the sea new to sail

Welcome Renn! As to learning the sailing thing, from what you've stated, you've already got some common sense, & sea sense under your belt. Most of which transfers directly. And the sailing specific stuff usually happens slowly enough not to be a big surprise... knock on wood. Though as with most things, you can at times see events coming, & only do your level best to mitigate them. In time, learning to avoid them earlier, & earlier.
Or as another CF member's siggy line states: "It's like fun, only different".
