Why, Hello!

Hi there, I'm Ian.

I'm new to sailing but experienced in boats from Canoes (Star Scout) to Zodiacs (USMC 8111).

Currently reading books/forums, taking local classes and playing around on rental sailing dinghys while putting away cash for first sailboat; ideally a 22' catalina/macgregor/s2 (ish) sloop.
Want to be able to go out into the gulf for a few days or cross some distance without fossil fuels.

living 6 months a year(every year) aboard and cruising...
circumnavigate single hand without gasoline, diesel or propane...

My lady: Sun + Sea + Boatlife = Admiral in the making!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
My first boat was a fin keel Catalina 22. Great starter boat.
I've got friends who have gone totally solar electric on their 31 footer. Interesting conversion. Here it is.
