Greetings from a new member in St. Petersburg, FL
 
Hello Everyone,

Thanks for allowing me to join your group. I'm new to sailing and the idea of living aboard a sail boat someday. I've grown up in and around water my whole life. Avid boater, jet skiing, swimmer, fishing, scuba diving and recently took up spearfishing. To be honest I come from a power boat background and use to laugh at sailboats. I know there are several power boaters here. It wasn't till recently that I caught an interest in sailboats as a way to live and travel. Getting close to retirement age not to mention the general need to unplug from the corporate world and be on the water full time. I won't be doing much posting as I have a lot of research to do. So basically I'll be reading the entire site!:biggrin:

If I'm lucky enough and things go as planned, maybe I'll see some of you on the water someday. :thumb:

Howdy and Ahoy Troy!

Welcome Aboard CF!

Yes, there are powerboat owners on this site too. They are good members who contribute their wisdom and experience on many topics. I continue to learn a lot from them.

So, this site has a mix of boaters (sail and power).

Have fun on the forum and on the water!
