Hi, I am new to sailing and this forum. Those of you who grew up around Baltimore
know who Captain
Chesapeake is and he was my first memory of boating
. I haven't even picked up my boat yet-I bought it on Ebay and it's waiting in Myrtle beach. I purchased an Aleutka 29' in rough shape and hope to sail her this summer.I have never sailed before but hope to do well enough to sail to Argentina
in 5 years( I also need to learn Spanish)!
everybody needs a plan B, and this is my plan to go find where I really belong in the world.
Anybody who has any advice- feel free to give it. I mostly need advice on how to make a living on the water
; I have good working skills. I am an ASE certified Master Auto Technician, machinist, collision
repair tech and formerly jet engine mechanic
in USAF. I currently own a used car lot, and plan to focus my efforts on rebuilding this Aleutka to where she is ready for some blue water
Yeah thats a lot to bite off and chew, but I am just starting my midlife crises and want to enjoy every minute-Thanks-Will
