Hello, My name is Curt. I have been lurking for awhile now. Discovered the forum just a few months ago. Have been in love with the ocean since an early age. Digging clams on coastal WA beaches, and salmon fishing
in Puget Sound
and WA coast at about 5yrs old hooked me for life. A move to SoCal and discovery of surfing fueled the lust for about ten years. Tales of high adventure in AK led me to commercial fishing
for Halibut and Crab for 7yrs where I learned to love life on a boat and honest hard work. A skipper
of mine once said "this is the price
you pay to be a free man". I loved the life but it was cut short by an accident
. I then went to college at the U of WA where I discovered sailboats. I crewed on raceboats and cruised with friends in Puget Sound
. I owned a O'day full keel
Mariner for quite awhile and loved it.
Since I finished college...life/marriage/kids/career....you know "all the excuses" have happened, not to mention being landlocked.
I know what I want but it's going to be a few more years, I am waiting my turn like so many others here on the forum are. Until then I am studying and learning
everything I can from here on CF and anywhere else I can.
I feel I have unfinished business with Our Mother Ocean as there is still wanderlust and need for exploration in my soul....wow, is that deep or what!!
Anyway, great to be here and thank you all.
