Still thinking in Delaware...

I've been lurking here a lot lately. Saw a post I thought needed answers and support, so I'm official now.

Aerospace engineer, slightly on the wrong side of forty, with limited sailing experience. Did ASA101 on the Chesapeake last month, had fun.

I'm intrigued by the possibilities of long trips on a sailing catamaran...
Walter

Well, since no one else has replied I will - welcome aboard. Answers and support are what it’s all about, so keep them coming.

(Another engineering type, myself on the “wrong side” of 60).

Hi Saghost and welcome to the party.

Aerospace engineer. So, that means you're a rocket scientist?

You will be expected to contribute to technical questions.

These days I work on the composite materials side of building helicopters, but yes, I've been introduced that way before. :-P

Re: Still thinking in Delaware...

Quality engineering is all about knowledge and experience, so the "wrong side" would be "younger than" in terms of engineering?

Welcome to CF.

Expertise in materials is a very useful bit of knowledge in boating. Mixing various materials with different characteristics in a corrosive environment can get interesting. Bet you can add a bit to that discussion.
