Ahoy! I have been lurking for a while and you all seem to be the real-deal. I just acquired my first big sailboat (Irwin 37) and am ready to... well, maybe not completely ready... to set sail for adventure.
My forum handle is 'RoadRanger' but my real nomen vero is Rick. I live a little North of Ft. Meyers, Florida
and am learning
more than I care to about salt water
. You see, I sailed Lake Michigan for most of my life and never worried about that stuff.
I look forward to reading your posts.
