Re: Hello from biloxi

Hey Matt, perhaps you are in luck... I am in Hattiesburg and will be sailing a small 19 footer out of the marina in Gulfport soon. Hopefully, as early as late February. I am wrapping up an epic renovation on an older 1967 boat. My goal is to have fun, and I really wanted to make some safety and comfort improvements on my boat prior to exploring the Mississippi sound.

My sailing experience was on Lake Ponchatrain, which was not too fun... kinda like sailing in a big pond...always ending up at shoreline sooner or later... It was a good safe place to learn though... I am always learning.

Believe it or not, I have recently been thinking about using my boat as a sort of floating "therapy session" for recently returning veterans who could maybe use a relaxing day on the water.

If you've never been sailing, you're in for a treat... its very peaceful activity...

I am almost done fiberglassing the cockpit area and can't wait to set sail on the MS sound.

Hope to see you back here... Bruce
