Land lubber today. Owner / Captain
Truly? I'm totally new sailing. I used to go out with the folks as a kid on the family motor boat
on the river. Water
skiing up & fishing
ETC was awesome when I was a kid. I was on water
ski's before I was ever on even a moped & I loved every min of it.
Now I'm a "little" older & a LOT wiser. I'm coming to the conclusion that I'm wanting to buy a 45' - 50' cat, get my license
& do my own thing jumping from port to port all around the world. I've been studying as much as I can through the screen
on my laptop
. Not only reading the books
but soaking in all the experiences possible from YouTube ETC. I understand that I'm still more than a stones throw away from being Bristol fashion. So a few things about me to understand..
Cursing like a sailor? I've got that down pat. I do try to reel it in when online but occasionally I do slip when I'm passionate about something. I'll probably ask a LOT of really stupid questions, I don't always catch on the first time & occasionally have to bleed through my knuckles before I understand something as I'm not too mechanically inclined. Please be patient with me, I can be stubborn. Most of my jobs have been in tech, I've literally clicked the mouse for a living & I'm looking at this as an opportunity to learn how to use various materials & tools to do things. (Like fiberglassing a boat
if need be, changing spark plugs ETC) I have a strangely dry sense of humor
, love to laugh & generally get along with everyone. It seems there's always that one guy though am I right? I'm fully aware sometimes it's me standing against the wall & I'm ok with that.
