Hello to everyone and Happy New Year!
I live in Alaska
about 40 miles north of Anchorage. I've sailed on small sailboats many years ago (was a commercial deckhand
salmon fisherman). I caught the sailing bug as a young man attending college in Hilo, Hawaii
, I had a chance to catch a berth on a cruiser that was sailing the south Pacific
but declined the offer, since I was in the middle of the semester (yeah poor excuse). Since then I've always wanted to blue water
sail but life happened...Yeah, I know, like most here as well I am sure.
So many (many) years later I am looking at a sailboat that was damaged in Irma...BIG challenge but doable with some money
and willingness to endure.
I'll be searching these pages and asking some questions, hopefully not too many dumb ones.
Thank you and I look forward to someday casting lines and cruising!
