Hi from Texas

Hi all,
First post but I've lurked here for a few weeks,
My name is Sam.

I've decided to get back into sailing after not sailing for the better part of 20 years or so. As far sailing experience goes, hmm, let's see ... Most of my experience from involves the approximately three I spent essentially crewing deliveries and boat bumming. My longest passage was either Miami to Colon, Panama or Cabo San Lucas to Vancouver, BC. I've sailed to Bermuda. I made several trips down the ICW and delivered/crewed on boats from the East Coast into the Caribean and back.I transitted the Panama Canal twice. During that time I sailed a lot production boats while moving boats for charter companies, a fair number of older mid to heavy displacement cruisers.

I think I know enough to have small glimpse into how much I don't know (which a hell of a lot).

I really want to finally learn celestial navigation. I just think its really cool and I love the idea of being able to navigate as generations before me have.

I plan to be asking a lot questions because for the first in my life I'm in the position of be able to buy a sailboat. But it is one thing to sail other peoples boats and another all to together to actually own one.

Thanks for reading. I look forward to getting to all you better.
