Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I've been sailing a few times but, for the most part, I'm a complete newbie at this. My immediate goal is to get some time on a boat here in Connecticut to learn the ropes.
I admit I have no business looking at boats but I'm doing so anyway. I was a guitar builder
in my younger days so I have woodworking skills. I wouldn't mind finding an old Catalina
to work on while I build my chops.
Thanks again. Back to lurking/learning mode.
