Hello everyone !
The wife and I have the sailing bug........ BAD!!! Or is it good ?? hmmmm.
Being complete newbs at this and needing to edgemacate ourselves till the housing market comes back, this place has been a great source!!!
Thanks for all the great info. And may the education begin!!!!
Welcome aboard! We like to criticize spelling here so I think the term is correctly spelled "ejumicate."
Courses are a good idea and walking the docks and talking with boaters is a great deal of fun. Sometimes sailing or yacht clubs help quite a bit in quelling the bug bite.
Location: 10,600 feet in the Rockies and Abaco, Bahamas
Boat: Tashiba 40
First Mate Blog
After living aboard for 10+ years I have just started a blog about the first mate's experience on a boat. I try to present an unbiased (well.kinda), sometimes humorous, and hopefully helpful view of some one that has been there and done that. There are a couple articles about things to think about before you actually buy the boat that might help. The blog is "A First Mates Rules of the Road" http://firstmatemary.blogspot.com Good luck on your adventure!
