Hi all,
We have had our yacht for 3/12 yrs now but have not lived on her since Sept last year.Have started doing some much needed maintenance and found this site while searching the net for some info.
Hope to get to sea again in the near future so will look here for info and inspiration.

Welcome aboard Mate, I have found the shipmates here to be pretty friendly (and mostly pretty smart ).
All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangereous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. T.E. Lawrence

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF Russ and Shaz.
Hope the maintenance goes well, and you're soon back aboard.

Aloha Russ n Shaz,
Welcome aboard! When Wotname was referring to when he said, "and mostly pretty smart." was Gord May.
You'll see a lot of his posts. Disregard mine.
Kind regards,
