Permission to board?
This looks like about as good a spot as any for a first post.
So Cal here. More specificaly LA/Long Beach. I've been sailing since before my teens. That's longer ago than I'd care to admit.
I let my USCG license expire a couple of decades ago when I started working with computers. Now it's feeling like time to let the computers expire, and take up with boats again.
I suspect I'll be spending most of my time in the "Crew" forum.
