New to the Forums and MOSTLY New to Sailing
Name's Diego, but my friends call me Sulley (long story).
I'm pretty much totally new at sailing. My only experience is a week after I graduated off the Outer Banks-that was some years ago.
Recently, after quite some time of looking, I've came across a (free) Bayliner. Haven't actually SEEN it yet-am going Saturday. Fella can't remember if it's 20 or 24 feet long, all he knows is it needs new sails, and needs a re-rigging job done.
Figured this place may be a decent learning tool for me-since this is going to be quite the project (both refitting her, and learning to sail her proper).
Anyway, that's why I'm here, now on to the bits no one really ever cares about (other than me):
I'm married, and have a beautiful daughter. I'm a semi-professional musician, and a full-time online student (simulation and game dev, for those keeping score at home).
I'm a collector of music instruments, sharp, pointed objects (swords and s'etch), firearms, and video games/systems.
I am NOT a regular forum poster on pretty much any forum I've ever joined. Normally, I post less than once a week. I just don't spend much time on the internet these days (yay for having a job)!
Anyway, I'm excited to learn as much as I can. I'll report back just as soon as I know more about this boat!
