Just a few words about me. My sailing experience spans now over 35 years and more than 100000 miles, mostly in gaff-rigged vessels. I work as chief officer on a merchant vessel, and sometimes as captain on sail training vessels, preferably racing. My own boat is a 50īgaff rigged cutter, a bit over 100 years old.

Best Regards!

Howdy and Welcome Aboard Martin!

I like gaff boats (though I don't own one…yet).

Add some photos of your boat, if you will, it always gives us something to admire.

Your enviable experience will be a good addition to this forum.
