Hello anybody who reads this
Just my introductory post. My name is Josh and I live in South Australia
. Been reading the forum for years now, and early last year purchased my first real yacht, a 1986 Nordic
40. Been so impressed with her and looking forward to long distance cruising with my wife in the future. At 27, I'm one of the youngest boat
owners at my sailing club and love trawling this forum for ideas/ information. Hoping to get involved and get some questions answered. Even though it is still early days owning a yacht this size, I'm rapidly learning
the joy and pain of boat ownership
. Being a tradesman in the building industry I like getting my hands dirty and working on her myself, I find it very enjoyable (apart from when i'm cursing at her).
