New guy here, Hello to all!!

Hello to all.
Just a little about me. Recently retired disabled American Veteran. U.S. Army, Infantry. I was born and raised in Port Angeles, Wa. Lot's of time in small power boats and did a bit of commercial fishing (salmon troller) when younger. I'm returning to my home waters after 30 years. A childhood dream was to be "one of those guys" living on, and sailing where and when they wanted. I recently bought her, my dream boat. 1980 Lancer 30. She's in great shape having been owned by a true world class pro sailer. It was to be his retirement boat, but sadly recent family health issues have changed his plans and he had to sell. What's truly incredible to me is that I didn't just get a beautiful boat but also a great friend and sailing mentor, Thank you Capt Jon. So Hello to all, I have been cruising this forum for a while and really enjoy the wealth of information and sail experience, I will be brain picking from time to time. Great forum!
Fair winds to all.

Re: New guy here, Hello to all!!

Oh yeah, the kids... mine have given me a few names like that too! BTW one of my dreamboats, that is for sale, is right in your neighborhood, I think Port Angeles, maybe Sequim... It's a Bounty II, I hear it is in great shape. I am not really shopping though, but if I were... Good luck and fair winds to you too!

Thanks for the welcome! Aren't kids are just awesome, even if we do end up with strange nick names, LOL. I think I've seen the boat your talking about, the 1959 41 Bounty II? I believe she's still in Port Angeles. She is a beautiful boat. Phil Rhodes hit a high mark with that design. I've heard that is a very well built boat. It's easy to have her on that dream list, just plain CLASSY!
Fair winds and good luck to you also!
