Figured I would introduce myself.
I live in N. California, near Eureka. I bought a International Tempest a little over a week ago. Turns out I bought a can of worms. I am going to have to take the thing apart and redo just about everything on it, so be prepared for a bunch of questions on that.
Because of my lack of judgement on that I am thinking of buying another dingy or cat to "mess about" in. Mainly just to remind myself why I am working on the Tempest, and partly to have something easier to drop in the lagoons and bay by myself to get practice.
I have a little bit of experience, but if asked I would probably just say none just so I would avoid having someone think I misrepresented myself.
That is a quicky rundown about me
