Welcome welcome.

Where in the world will you be “out on the water”?

Starting out in the Galveston area for a little while. Once our skills improve plan on doing the Caribbean in the future. Of course life and funds dictate if that is sooner or later. LOL

Re: New to sailing and New to the site

After we took over our boat from our vendor he took a photo of us very similar to yours. With a smirk he said "you are boat owners now". I pass on the tradition.

Welcome to the forum and enjoy your new boat (you may remember this sentence )

Re: New to sailing and New to the site

Hello everyone!

Just bought a 1999 Beneteau 411 Sailboat. Super excited and looking forward to many hours of sail-on fun within Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Based at Marina Puerto del Rey in Fajardo.

It’s a live-aboard and first experience sailing. I’m an airplane kind of guy. Commercial Pilot License, so this is quite different.

Working and opening every board and under-floor hideaway to learn all there is about this beauty.

Looking forward to share my experiences with this community and learn from you all.

Happy Sailing everyone!
