This Is A New Wannabe

I've been fallowing CF for a long time. Since the day I first found about it, it has been a favorite place for me.

I've been dreaming about cruising since I knew myself.

I just wanted to say hello...

Re: This Is A New Wannabe

Am there, living that, but in the meantime, I am trying best I can to get on other peeps boats, and spend time on the water through their boat, and I am up front about that fact. Hopefully someday I will be owning my own, in the meantime I read, read, and rread some more, and get out the few times month when I can on others boats.

I have a business to sell that sucks all my spare time, and my not so spare time, and once that is gone, and with it a nice payout, will I have the time and money to l get off "pure dirt" and stop being a Land Cruiser. In the meantime, make friends, as I have found out there are alot of boat owners who would enjoy having a new hand on deck and making new friendships as well.

Now if I can only talk my wife into this... ;0).

Hi Land Cruiser,

Good advice, Thank you. I am currently in the stage of having lessons and learning things as much as I can. I will be there soon.

Cheers,
Sosriqwe.
