Being fairly new to cruseing and the bigger boats I'm hoping to have some conversations with folks who are smarter than me so I can make some good decisions while avoiding some of the pitfalls that can often occur.
Most everyone here is like that
I think the process is to define what kind of sailor you really are and it really is more about you than what other people do. Crossing over from racing
to cruising changes a lot of things and it's a different kind of fun.
Sorry but being 40 isn't old enough. I have coats older than 40. Seriously, there is a lot to read here and asking questions is the only reason there is anything to read at all. People ask and some people will respond. We don't charge and the information can be worth far more than you paid for it.
Please join the fun and I know you'll find some thought provoking reading. I know because I wrote some of it
I also know people that wrote even more! It's why I still read here too. I've been here 10 years and there is always something to peak interest.
