New addition saying hi!

I just joined this forum today and want to say hello and thanks for being here! I just bought a dinghy and am looking for my first sailboat. So you will be hearing a lot from me in the future!

Welcome to the forum. We all started somewhere. Either big or small it makes no difference. I have friends that load their tiney boat with gear and go camping on small islands in the intracoastal. I remember bringing my s/v through some beautiful islands near Ft. Myers. There were a number of people on the islands having fun. Enjoy your vessel and remember that there are people paying big bucks to keep their large boat. The name of the game is to enjoy.
