Re: Old member returning...

Well, heck bobola, welcome back to CF!

Do you have a boat? Where (roughly) are you from? Have you any cruising plans?

Re: Old member returning...

Hey, welcome back. You were one of the really early ones at 2003. Your going to need to get really active to catch up to old Boatman's post count though.

There are 2380 members and guests online right now so the CF has been doing pretty well all these years. Super aggravating sometimes but still the best sailing forum available.

Re: Old member returning...

Greetings and welcome back, Bob.

Bob was the one who turned me on to the CF, way back when. Prior to that, we were dock mates in Ft Lauderdale.

Re: Old member returning...

Ann, am 50% owner of a 16' Hobie Cat. Previous owner of a 34' custom steel sailboat. Was docked next to Gordon May in Ft. Lauderdale many many years ago, in what seems like a previous lifetime. Originally from the Twin Cities & currently landlocked in Kansas City, MO. I do not have any cruising plans at this time, but sailboats and the cruising lifestyle are very close to my heart.

boatman61, where have I been and was it fun..?? 16 years into a corporate job and 20 years into my marriage here in Kansas City, MO, and it has all been fun, but I do miss the sailing scene....

Palarran, if you look at the member list and sort by date, I am the oldest one here.. Is there a prize for that unique distinction..?? boatman61 has almost 20k posts..!! wow...

Gordy, nice to see you still here..!! Tell Maggie I said hi.
