Permission to Come Aboard . . .

Hi Folks - My wife and I are retiring soon and have plans for a cat and relocation to the Caribbean. . . we're new to the sailing world. . . but not boating and can use all the help we can get. . .

True knowledge to me is knowing. . . that you don't know. . . and there's a lot we don't know

Hope to be able to share some thoughts and meet good folks. . .

Blessings

Bill

Re: Permission to come aboard. . .

Good to have you with us, Bill... lots of good info at reasonable prices (like $0). Folks have a wealth of experience and are happy to share it with others who have similar interests. Additionally, you get many points of view on the same issue... good luck in your transition from shore side to the wet side... cheers, Capt Phil

Re: Permission to Come Aboard . . .

Welcome;


As others have already pointed out, you sure found the right place to gain and share information.


You did not say where you are currently based and you should probably do that soon so that other members local to your area might be inclined to contact you....James
