Hello to all,
I've been monitoring and contributing to this form for a couple of weeks now. I must say it is very well set up, the best I've seen yet! I would like to be able to download pictures right to the site BUT I realize that takes a lot of space and the cost would need to be compensated. A spell check would be nice too, for us guys/gals who over see a proof read. But on to myself and not to be arrogant or conceited, just informative.
I'm in my early 50's, married to a native born Filipino who's been on this continent since the 80's. We would like to cruise
the Visayas Is. some time soon.
We have two s/v's, one 23' on a trailer
and a 40' that we keep on the hard
when not in use. I will post more info on them in another section with a link to pictures.
Myself, I'm the Sr. Maintenance
Machinist for the City of Seattle
in Wa. working on all the equipment
for the Fleets and Facilities Dept., a Jack of Trades.
I've been working on boats, power and sail, since 1969. It all started while in the Navy
over in Viet Nam repairing vessels from Tugs to PBR's. My father was a Merchant Marine
most of his life and I guess the salt
runs in the blood.
I'm also an Open Water
Diver but haven't been active for a couple years.
There seems to be a fairly experianced crew onboard here, and there's a lot I can learn. I hope that I can contribute also for the benifit of all.
