A few words about myself seem in order here. I am male, 69 yrs. of age (an old fart). Born in England
, served in the Royal Navy
for 7 years. Had trouble settling down on being demobbed so joined a friend in the same situation and took his father's boat from Falmouth to the West Indies and back via Bermuda
for a year. Got married and emigrated to Canada
, currently live in Toronto until 'er at work retires next month then we plan on moving to a small place called Goderich on Lake Huron. We currently own a Hughes
, not fast by any means but very comfortable and easy to handle on the Great Lakes
. Most sailing to date has been on Lake Ontario
, but with the move next year we plan to sail to Goderich via the Welland Canal, Lake Erie and into Lake Huron. Then we shall be sailing in Georgian Bay and I hope to cover all the Great Lakes
before I have to hang up my sea-boots. Have been lurking for a while before deciding to leap into the fray.
Cheers to all.
