The New Guy

Hello all,

My name is Ted. I've been lurking on the forums and gleaning as much knowledge as possible for a few weeks now and I finally decided to join.

I'm 29 years old, I live in the Tampa, FL area and I'm a student at the University of South Florida (USF). I grew up in South Florida near Ft. Lauderdale and spend a lot of time at the beach, snorkeling, and out on various types of boats.

When I was 14 I sailed to the Abacos with a friend and his parents and lived on their 35' sailboat (I believe it was a Hunter) for 6 weeks.

Since then I have been a landlubber and I miss being out on the water. A few months ago I spent some time out on Biscayne Bay with my father on his Kayak and it reminded me how much I have been missing out. Since then I have gotten my Advanced Open Water Scuba Cert and went on a dive trip in Key Largo.

Good old Poseidon has me hooked once again. Looking forward to talking to everyone and thanks for all the great info!
