Permission to Come Aboard?

Hi Everyone,
We've been lurking a bit and finally signed up. We sail Gin Rhumby, 1976 Columbia Payne 9.6 hull #11 out of Racine, WI and are making plans to relocate to the Gulf area in the next couple of years via the Tenn-Tom route.

As we ready ourselves and our boat we'll be checking in frequently to learn what we can, get encouragement and maybe even help others when we have something to add.

You can watch our progress, as well as see our old boat at

Welcome to the forum.

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow - what a ride!"

Welcome from SW Florida GinRhumby!
My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.
