Howdy, new guy here. Fairly new to sailing, as well. I started out sailing with a pal on a Hobiecat 16 and that captured my interest. I then took a sailing class through a local university and sailed their dinghies for a few years until the program was shut down. So, I bought a Hobie Wave. My introduction to keelboats was crewing for Wednesday evening Beer Can racing (total keelboat newb at the time). Since then I've crewed and skippered on a keelboat just shy of 200 times. Cheers.
Location: La Ciudad de la Misión Didacus de Alcalá en Alta California, Virreinato de Nueva España

Re: New to the site
I would suggest updating your profile with your general location and your boat make & model or “Looking” in the "Boat" category. This info shows up under your UserName in every post in the web view. Many questions are boat and/or location dependent and having these tidbits under your UserName saves answering those questions repeatedly. If you need help setting up your profile then click on this link: https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums...ml#post3308797
If you need further help let me know, I would be happy to.

A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.
