New to the Forum; back to sailing

This is Mr & Mrs opsailor ("Son of a Sailor") from St Augustine. We have been cruising the past four years from Long Island, Bahamas to Fairlee Creek, Md. About 10,000nm on our '84 Marine Trader. She was kind of ragged when purchased, but we brought her back to life and made her run good, look good, and comfortable. But next week we are picking up our 41DS Hunter from SW Florida and bringing her back home. We'll sail as far north as possible this summer before turning around and heading down islands, maybe as far as Venezuela.

We enjoy ALL the information and data we get off this forum, and hope to stay plugged in.

The basis of accomplishment is in never quitting
