Bill, I live in western Henrico, too, and day sail on Swift Creek Reservoir. Sounds like you're eventually thinking Chesapeake, but if you want to quell the jones in the meantime, I'd be happy to have you aboard sometime.
My answer to "what first cheap small simple reliable roomy compact easy to handle fun safe comfortable boat do you recommend" is a Flying Scot. But that's only one of a bunch of reasonable choices. If you'd like to get out some weekend or evening for a Scot introduction, send me a PM.
Let me think about it for a little while...
OK, time's up! ABSOLUTELY.
That would be terrific. I'd love to.
Unfortunately, as I am brand-spanking new to this site and have only two posts to my name, it will not allow me to send PMs yet. I'll need five posts to win that privilege. So I can either spew some additional nonsense in a couple more posts to jack up my post count, or you could contact me at w.taggart (AT) verizon (DOT) net and I can give you my phone number.
Thanks VERY much!
