Salut le monde
New member patiently reading, learning, questioning, grinding teeth in anticipation of a reasonably priced Wauquiez Hood 38. Looking forward to seeing you all through the board.
Nick

Welcome aboard, and to echo the previous posts, please add some info to your profile. A location often leads to free drinks

Aloha Nick,
Welcome to the forum. Great place to learn things and get advice. All of the folks are friendly after your first chastisement (initiation). Hope to see you in Hawaii when you start your cruising.
Kind Regards, --John--

Yes! Welcome aboard The Far Away Man.

It seems you Mates are getting around a lot these days. Just last week I had several encounters with some Aussies.

I called Florida asking about some boom parts and talked to and Aussie.
I called Rhode Island asking about a Sail quote and talked to an Aussie.
I called the plumber shop at work and talked to an Aussie.
I called one of our electrical vendors and talked to an Aussie.

You guys are everywhere.

Good luck on the Wauquiez. I haven't seen many for sale............._-/)

I think that Hawaii could well now feature on the future plans. Your president seems to have done a good thing for your northwestern areas. I had not heard of this waterworld before. Will this new designation place limits at all on access and what are these reports of it being a popular home to generously sized predators?
A homage visit to the north shore of Oahu as well has always been on the cards.
Hope to see you there.

Aloha Faraway,
I don't know how the President's action will effect recreational sailors yet. It was rather a shock. Now we'll have to wait to see what type of restrictions will be employed to keep us out. Not too many predators up there. Not like the Barrier Reef I would imagine (never been there).
I used to live on the North shore of Oahu and the big surf does roll in in the winter. Summer is placid. It is a beautiful place.
Now I live on the Big Island of Hawaii and all is a bit different here. Not as many people and a great deal of open space. Rainfall is 120 inches a year and it is a jungle out there.
If you get to Hilo, Hawaii give me a call and I'll bring down my very large cooler.
Regards, --John--

Well if you want a cheap trip to Australia without actually going there, just visit Whistler BC and the dominant accent will be Australian. In fact some Australians are disappointed when they arrive there to work because they came to North America to meet new people from around the world and they feel they are around other Australians more than when they left their home country.

Welcome to the forum and I hope you are successful in your - sometime in the future - boat purchase.
