Hello To All,
I Just wanted to properly introduce myself to the forum. I have been a member
here for a year or so but somehow always procrastinated my introduction
We are from St. Joseph Island, located in the north channel of Lake Huron. We have been bit hard by the cruising bug and we would like to teach our children
(6 and 4) in fun and challenging ways.
I have greatly enjoyed reading through the information contained in the forum and it has been helpful in helping us (wife and two young boys) get towards our goal of going criusing. We just came back from our shake down cruise
(Solomon's MD to Morehead NC). We plan on taking off at the end of the year for Florida
and the Bahamas
We have even purchased a few items from members here, including our lovely boat, a Maxim 380 catamaran
. Many thanks to the previous owners of S/V Makai for letting her go to us and for being helpful during our shake down cruise
. I couldn't have asked to have purchased from nicer people than Bil and Sharon.
We look forward to meeting more of you out there in the near future. Hopefully we will be able to contribute more to the forum as we learn more.
Many thanks to the members who provide fantastic information to the forum in various ways.
Thanks from the crew of soon to be Rodina Cat ( Rodina is slovak for Family)
