Hi all
Enjoying the forums, and picking up loads of helpful info.
Sasha is our first keel boat, first diesel engine, and many other firsts.
Enjoy sailing Moreton Bay with my wife and dog, but still have not worked up the courage or time to venture further.
Some of the posts here may give me the motivation I need!

Hi Graham. Welcome to the forum. Tons of experience here, just keep reading. "Firsts" are great, too. Some of the best stories that my husband and I share are about our first boating excursions. Have fun and eat well on the boat, wherever you are.

Push the envelope gently and on your own terms. I think of fear as a friend and pride as an enemy. But fear is not telling you to stay home. It's telling you to plan ahead, check twice and know the risks.

Welcome aboard and happy sailing.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
We all have moved at our own pace and that's the best way for us.
Good to have you here.
