I'd highly recommend not posting information like your phone number and your e-mail addresses on-line. I'd also recommend you read the POST in my signature.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

No. I just hate seeing people get nailed by spammers and identity thieves.

BTW, if someone PM's you, you won't be able to reply until you have at least FIVE posts IIRC...so reply once more in this thread and you should be good to go.

Chris, don't let him kid you. Anyone who averages 8000 posts per year probably doesn't have a day job somewhere else.

haha thanks for the inspiration, I'm just lookin to become a professional sailor before I start getting into mechanics and boatbuilding, just makes sense to me to learn how to sail em, then learn how to fix em, then learn how to make em, by the way you know any boat mechanics or boat builders?
