Newbie in Ohio

Hello, former small boat sailer, current rv'er researching boats for live aboard and long distance cruising. I hope to learn from the experienced sailors and cruisers starting with which boat to buy.

Hi, Bill. My best friend lives in Ohio.


From what I have seen there is a lot of experience in here to learn from.

Hi Bill, I'm also from Ohio. Spent a few years dreaming in Cincinnati until I bought a little daysailor for the local lakes. Took some ASA on lake Michigan, then bought my 30 foot boat, all in the same year

I'm still a noob myself, but I managed to sail down the Chesapeake, and I'm living aboar and looking forward to new adventures south.

Your welcome to PM me as well, or just ask anything in the forums.
