New to the forum.

Hi everyone!

My wife Amanda and I are new to the forums and sailing AND boat ownership all at once! Well the last part is a bit of a lie. We purchased Happy Hour a Tanzer 7.5 last year. So we aren't totally new but it still feels as such especially as we start our first full season with the boat and we are beginning to explore spring maintenance and upgrades we would like to make for longer trips. We are meeting the challenges with much enthusiasm but expect many questions. (Where should I post those questions by the way?)

Amanda and I are both 25 years and currently live and work in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. We moor and sail on Great Slave Lake.
