Looking for others in Hood Canal area

Hello fellow sailors. Just wanted to start finding others in the Puget Sound - Hood Canal area that I can get acquainted with and possibly look at sailing with over 2013. I and my wife purchased our first "real" boat this past October. Well at least the vessel that I wanted . It is an '81 Skookum 53. Having sailed sloops and Hobby cats I have a lot of learnin' to do with a ketch of this size. I have found the forum enlightening but it would be nice to chat with real people face to face as well.

Re: Looking for others in Hood Canal area

Welcome to the forum. There are a few here with Slocums. It would be nice if the forum Guru's had a search feature to find who has what boat...JMHO
