Coming back after a long absence...

Hi folks! I was on this forum long ago (I "think" my username was Whirlwind), and as sometimes happens life just got in the way. My Morgan Out Island 33 is "almost" back together again, so I'm about ready to try and get back into the sailing life. I'm glad to be here. :-)

Re: Coming back after a long absence...

Welcome back...I did the same thing. I had sold my Hallberg Rassy 35 after cruising Mexico for 3 years. I got a little burned out on it. I figured since I was boatless I would wait. Now I am also back into it.

Welcome back.. shame you left as sailing knowledge and experience can always be passed on down the line.

Re: Coming back after a long absence...

I had a Hunter 36 for 13 years...lost my wife of 31 years together. Lost my passion for sailing for a long time and never thought I go out to sea again. Now remarried and bought a Jeanneau 41DS and so happy we did.

Re: Coming back after a long absence...

Welcome back! Some things have changed since you've been gone. We've all decided heavy full keel boats are best, along with CQR anchors, so be sure you are with the program.

Re: Coming back after a long absence...

Welcome back.

I would suggest updating your profile with your general location and your boat make & model in the "Boat" category. This info shows up under your UserName in every post in the web view. Many questions are boat and/or location dependent and having these tidbits under your UserName saves answering those questions repeatedly. If you need help setting up your profile then click on this link: https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums...ml#post3308797

I would happily help more if the link above is not enough.

Re: Coming back after a long absence...

Yeah.. that's the way..
Definitely fullkeel but with square sails too sir Don.
Gotta let the wind torque the leading charge into just wanting smooth seas amongst a messed up front.
However.. finding crew to stay lines is another issue.
