New Member Hello

Greetings Everyone,

Just a quick hello to really say, THANKS EVERYONE!!! CruisersForum has been a truly invaluable resource over the last 15 months as I've worked to refit my first sailboat for an extended offshore cruise. I can't thank you enough for all the experience and expertise you've shared. As you already know, the reality of boat ownership quickly becomes a real eye opener, no matter how much warning others try and provide. The help and information you've made available here was, and continues to be, a major relief. I only hope I can return the gift as my own experience and expertise grows and matures along this wonderful adventure called cruising.

Sincere thanks!
