Dan, wow, sounds like some real cool history in your family. Would love to hear a sea story. May be a favorite passed down in the family? or your own adventures as a lad on your "toy sailboat".
Cheers and welcome to the forum
Erika

What Runs in the Veins?

Sounds as if there is more salt water than blood. Welsome

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF Dan.

I hope, like Jimmy Buffet's "Son of a son of a sailor", you can chalk up many a mile, and stay one step ahead of the jailer.

Welcome Dan and let us know of your plans for the Carib. We may cross paths at some point and "need" to have a beer!
