I'm Steve, a newbie to the forum, although I've been following threads on it for a few months, I had yet to introduce myself.
I love the water
; sailing, SCUBA
and Kayaking. I spent most of my youth as a deckhand
on my grandfathers charter
boats in Morro Bay California
but did little sailing until a few years ago. I'm in the process of re-decking my 1968 Mariner 31 Ketch
. I hope to have it in the water
next summer for a trip up to the San Juans or down to Newport
for a shakedown. In the meantime, I'll keep reading threads in this forum, which I find to be inspiring and informative.
Thanks for all your insight, experience and willingness to share our sailing passion openly.
